Clear cost control based on service types

The Microsoft Azure Cloud offers many different resources, e.g. virtual machines, cloud services or websites. Some of these resources produce comprehensible costs e.g. virtual machines, but some resources produce costs that are indirect and hard to analyse, like costs for “Data Traffic”, “Visual Studio Online” or “Data Management”.

To solve this problem and facilitate the cost control, all service types are now visible in the Azure Cost Monitor. The new category for grouping this service types helps to identify the cost drivers in different subscriptions and projects.
