Deployment cost for demo/test


#1

I thought this might be of interest to anyone looking at the cost of a test/demo environment.

I’ve an Azure instance of Metabase 0.29.3 running on Ubuntu via https with just the sample database. Runs very swiftly without any problems (bar my basic knowledge of Linux).
It’s a B1ms Standard instance with 1 vCPU and 2 GB RAM, SSD in UK South.
It’s currently using about half that RAM, so plenty enough for a few users.
Current cost is about £15 per month.

Oddly, dropping the SSD doesn’t save anything as the only available options have less RAM.
Dropping to 1GB would half the cost. Increasing to 4GB double.
Once I have time. I’ll be moving some data into Azure SQL to test the costs and performance.
