When you install the Nerdio Manager application from the Azure Marketplace, the following resources get automatically created.
- Automation Account
- SQL server and SQL database (S1)
- Application Insights
- App Service plan and App Service (B3)
- Key vault
The initial deployment is sized to accommodate thousands of AVD users. The SQL Database and App Service have non-negligible Azure costs associated with them.
- App Service (B3) - $219/month (list price)
- SQL Database (S1) - $29/month (list price)
For small scale pilot deployments you can scale down the App Service as low as B1 ($55/month) and SQL Database as small as B ($5/month). This can be done live in the Azure portal without shutting down the application. However, keep in mind that this may have an impact on how responsive Nerdio Manager for AVD comes with such small resource sizes.
For large deployments (10,000+ AVD users), you can instead up the size of the SQL Database and App Service.
