  1. Identify VMs that are not enabled for Hybrid Usage Benefits (HUB)

    VMs can take advantage of existing on premises licences for Windows and SQL to make the Azure spend lower. A recommendation to enable HUB would save some money (assuming appropriate licences are held by the Azure user)

  2. Identify VMs configured for ASR replication in Recovery Vaults

    VMs that are deleted are not automatically deleted from ASR so are still costing money. A job to find and delete these would save cash.

  7. Ability to select the criteria for my own recommendations

    Custom Savings Criteria — Customers want to be able to select their own recommendations criteria length. I.e: instead of detecting 30-day inactivity for VM, a weekly detection.
