Microsoft Azure is a comprehensive collection of cloud-based services and features, ranging from Infrastructure as a Service virtual machines to Software as a Service offerings, such as Office 365. Using Azure subscriptions, businesses can choose which Azure services and features they want to deploy in the cloud. Prior to deployment to Azure, it is important to know how Microsoft bills for Azure services as well as what levels of support are provided. Because Microsoft Azure is a use based subscription, it is important to understand how you can scale up and scale down your environment with Azure.
How Can You Use Azure Subscriptions to Scale the Environment?
Scaling an environment for the use of Azure is integral. It can make the difference between a small business and an enterprise. The solutions derived within Azure can not only scale up or scale down productivity, but also allow businesses to expand and expound upon their currently profitable services. To avoid per-subscription limits, organizations often use multiple Azure subscriptions. There are several strategies that you can adopt to ensure that your Azure subscription scales the environment and manages Azure resources effectively. Once you create your initial subscriptions, depending on the model of your organization, you can create additional subscriptions to scale your environment. Before you scale your subscriptions:
- Consider the subscription limits imposed on some resource types. You might need to create additional subscriptions if some resources are limited in a particular subscription.
- Consider the data ingress and egress costs between subscriptions.
- Consider business priorities like governance, migration, operations, innovation and security.
- Consider that some resources fit better on other subscriptions, and you can move resources between subscriptions depending on where they fit best.
It is super important to not only understand how to use the subscription, but also the subscription types.
