Lower the Azure Firewall price
I was jumping at testing out Azure Firewall to help protect my Public Cloud Resources, but had to axe that idea when i got my latest bill through luckily few days in. I was shocked at the cost to Azure Firewall which in hindsight new deployments I generally do use Azure Pricing Calculator to check the cost but for Azure Firewall I assumed as its an addon to VNET's and a critical security role that it wouldn't be much more than my firewalled VM instance was costing. I got that wrong and then some, it would of worked out 10x more expensive than the B2S VM it was protecting! lol, who costed up this resource?? Anyway Ill stick to NSG's & adaptive net hardening as well as JIA i cant even justify using another VM for BYOD replacement right now but when the time comes and Azure Firewall still costs what it does now will use a VM with BYOD app on.
Just thought id air my feedback here on my utter shock to this Over Priced Resource in comparison to other resources I use all the time..
Please can anyone at Microsoft who reads this post and can pass this on to the relevant parties can we get a cheaper Firewall solution from Microsoft to go with the other amazing and cost inline resources on offer from Microsoft Azure!!!
