Optimize your reservation purchases with reservation utilization alerts.

Published date: May 23, 2023

Azure reservations can provide cost savings by committing to one-year or three-year plans. However, reservations can sometimes go unutilized or underutilized, resulting in financial losses. As a billing account or reservation user, you can review the utilization percentage of your reservation purchases in the Azure portal, but you might miss out important changes. By enabling reservation utilization alerts, you solve this by receiving email notifications whenever any of your reservations exhibit low utilization. This allows you to take prompt action and optimize your reservation purchases for maximum efficiency.

The alert email provides essential information including top unutilized reservations and a hyperlink to the list of reservations. By promptly optimizing your reservation purchases, you can avoid financial losses and ensure that your investments are delivering the expected cost savings. Learn more.
