Estimating your costs in the cloud may seem like a scary proposition. There are many factors to consider, and overlooking one can paint a misleading picture. To help people understand some of the less obvious factors, I've started a blog series called Hidden Costs in the Cloud that focuses on the Windows Azure Platform. Here are the links to the first two parts of the series:

Excellent articles David. They absolutely triggered me and basic knowledge right now. Also created some code snippets for efficient cloud programming.

Also check out some real world input by developers on Azure costs.
