When it comes to managing costs in the Azure cloud, it is essential to have a reliable system that can help you keep track of your spending and alert you when you are getting close to exceeding your budget. This is where Turbo360’s Budgets monitoring feature comes in.

The Budgets monitoring feature in Turbo360 is designed specifically for Azure cost monitoring. It allows you to create budgets for your Azure resources, monitor your spending, and receive alerts when you are approaching or exceeding your budgeted amount.

Setting up Azure Budget alerts in Turbo360

  • To set up Azure budget alerts in Turbo360, you will first need to select the scope for your budget. This can be your Azure subscription, resource group, or any specific Azure resource.
  • Once you have selected the scope, you will need to set a budget amount and the time period for which the budget applies. Turbo360 supports daily, monthly, and seven-day budgets.
  • Next, you will need to configure the alert rules for your budget. This can be done by specifying the recipient’s email address, and the channels through which you would like to receive them.
