CHICAGO, Nov. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nerdio (www.getnerdio.com) is the creator of Nerdio for Azure, ITaaS automation that enables automated provisioning, management, and optimization of complete IT environments in the Microsoft Cloud. Today, the company announced the new Azure Cost Estimator  (http://getnerdio.com/azurecalculator), a simple-to-use web tool that allows anyone to comprehensively calculate the costs of running IT in Microsoft Azure.

Azure Cost Estimator not only tallies cloud expenditures, but any combination of components like Office 365, RDS CAL, VDI, GPU, and Windows servers. IT decision makers can enter such details as the number of desktops needed – including dedicated VDI desktops – as well as storage space and dedicated server requirements, and Office 365 E3 licenses. Nerdio makes a series of standard assumptions for parameters like bandwidth, storage access, or user to CPU core ratio, using pricing based on average East US 2 region prices. Users can change and customize these to fit their specific needs.

Unique to Nerdio are features that enable users estimate savings based on its optimization features. These include Azure's Hybrid Usage Benefit, end-user performance monitoring, and Intelligent AutoScale, which dynamically resizes or shuts down remote desktop hosts and VDI desktops based on actual usage trends.

“Azure is a powerful platform, but the multitude of components can make understanding the real costs somewhat complex,” said Vadim Vladimirskiy, CEO and Co-Founder of Nerdio. “Our easy-to-use Azure Cost Estimator not only determines how much you’ll be spending, but pinpoints real savings you can achieve using Nerdio’s optimization features.”

IT decision makers can create multiple price models and save and print these as necessary. In addition, they can also factor in any Azure or Office 365 price discounts, as well as report pricing in USD, CAD, AUD, EUR and GBP.
