So far, we have analyzed the most common saving techniques, such as cleanup, right-sizing, and reservations, and have also considered and maybe already planned an application optimization continuous process. In this section, we'll bring everything together with some real-life examples that will show you how everything will come together in a beautiful dance once you've trained each dancer individually.
Storage throughput versus network bandwidth
Previously, we learned that every VM family has different capabilities and performance, so we have VMs with wider storage bandwidth and VMs with wider network bandwidth, with different costs. In addition, please always keep in mind that the network traffic inside a VNet is not billed.
Let's consider your first application: it's a one-database architecture, where it is unlikely that you can save costs by reducing nodes as they are already at a minimum. Decoupling the database storage to another...
