Optimizing your multi-cloud environment

Cloud providers offer advisor tools we can use to optimize environments that are hosted on their platforms. In this section, we will briefly look at these different tools and how we can use them.

Optimizing environments using Azure Advisor

Like AWS, Azure offers a tool to help optimize environments, called Azure Advisor. Azure Advisor is a service that helps in analyzing our Azure environments and making recommendations around the pillars of the Well-Architected Framework. Next to this, we should evaluate the support plans.

Let’s start with the support plans. Azure offers four types of plans: basic, developer, standard, and professional direct. The basic plan is free, while the most expensive one is professional direct. However, you can’t compare this to the enterprise plan of AWS. Every provider offers free and paid services—the difference per provider is which services are free or must be paid for.
