@Valon_Kolica Can you help me understand Azure Defender pricing for SQL server? Azure Defender for SQL servers on machines lists both $15/Server/Month and $0.015/Core/Hour. $0.015/Core/Hour works out to $10.95/month per core.


Does this mean that it would cost $25.95/month ($10.95 + $15) for Azure defender for a 1 Core VM running SQL?
