Choose between Azure Cost Management and Cloudyn

Cloudyn is being deprecated by the end of 2020. Existing Cloudyn features are being integrated directly into the Azure portal wherever possible. With the exception of CSP customers, no new customers can onboard at this time. Support for the existing product will remain until it is fully deprecated.

Microsoft acquired Cloudyn and is migrating its cost management features from the Cloudyn portal natively into Azure. To use the new features, sign in to the Azure portal and navigate to Cost Management and Billing in the list of Azure services. Compared to Cloudyn, the native experience offers improved performance and lower data latency of about eight hours.

Key feature migration for Enterprise Agreement, Pay-As-You-Go, and MSDN offer categories to Azure Cost Management is complete. CSP subscriptions are in the process of being migrated over to Azure Cost Management.

If you have an offer category not yet migrated, you should continue to use the Cloudyn portal. Everyone else can use Azure Cost Management.
