Azure billing summary explained

Since I backup my nas to Azure my usage has gone up. The azure portal shows the credit status and offers a more detailed summary. But what do the numbers mean?

I’ve made a screenshot of my storage usage. A small bug on the portal leaves the details in dutch when I change the language to english, but I’m sure you know what information is shown.


First the grey bar on top of the screenshot. This contains the current used credits / the sum of all days of the current period (monthly). On the left the total is presented in Gigabyte and on the right the total in credits (311.05 * €0.0358 = €11,12)

The nodes in the graph show the average usage per day. Days are on the horizontal ax. I’m storing around 1 Terabyte, which averages to ±1004 / 30 = 33.48 Gigabyte per day in a period of 30 days.

Hope this clears the clouds around azure billing.
