What has been your experience with Azure hosting some or all of your companies web apps and/or services on Azure? Our team has yet to push anything into Azure because I keep getting told its too expensive. However, I have to keep up with this area on my own if for no other reason than to keep my skills relevant. Azure is NOT going away.

However, when I run the pricing calculators I see drastic differences between what some on our team are saying and what estimates Im seeing. I need examples that I can take to other team members and management to justify Azure in terms of costs.

What kinds of things do you do to:
- Get an accurate estimate of your costs
- Manage costs so they dont get out of control

One experience that turned off some on our team was when a simple app was left running and it cost well over $1000 that month which compared to some 3rd party server hosting is nuts.
