Question: How can I fetch the cost of Azure Redis Cache services?

Answer

Fetching the cost details of Azure Redis Cache involves making use of Azure Cost Management and Billing services. Before you start, ensure that you have access to these services.

Here are the steps:

  1. Navigate to the Azure portal.

  2. In the left-hand menu, select "Cost Management + Billing".

  3. Under "Cost Management", choose "Cost analysis".

  4. Here you can filter by service names. Choose "Redis Cache" from the list.

This will show you a detailed breakdown of your costs associated with Azure Redis Cache.

Azure also provides APIs such as the Azure Cost Management APIs to programmatically fetch cost and usage information. However, this is more complex and requires programming knowledge, Azure AD setup, etc.

If you want to estimate the cost of Azure Redis Cache before using it, consider using the Azure Pricing Calculator. You can add "Azure Cache for Redis" to your products in the calculator and adjust parameters like region, tier, and quantity to estimate the costs.

It's important to note that costs are dependent on multiple factors including:

  • The tier you choose (Basic, Standard, or Premium)
  • The size of the cache
  • The region in which the cache is deployed
  • Additional features like clustering, data persistence, and virtual network deployment

Therefore, monitoring costs regularly helps you optimizing resources & cutting expenses where possible.
