We have a paid Azure subscriptions and it has various customer production environments hosted in Azure. It is hard to monitor the usage and the credit runs out too fast without any notification. The next moment when you login to Azure Portal, Voila! Azure Subscriptions has been disabled, VMs has been de-allocated, public IPs removed, VPN Gateway all removed!
This is really the worst disaster I have been , it takes me long hours to recovers the environment and hard explanation to our customers on how this could happened. Seriously I would consider about Azure again while recommending the service to our customers. We should have received reminders/notification when credit running low or when it is going to be disabled. Our services should not be removed without having our consent! How do I use Azure service while having a risk like this?Lam Lih Ping supported this idea ·
