How is Virtual Machines charged? Why does my virtual machine still incur costs when it’s stopped?

Virtual Machines billing consists of two parts: the cost of the virtual machine itself and the cost incurred by its disk (including managed disk and non-managed disk), so as long as your virtual machine and the disk are not deleted, disk storage cost always exists.

In addition, note that the two virtual machine statuses “Stopped” and “Stopped (de-allocated)” are charged differently.

Are all data stored in Azure encrypted?

Azure provides Storage Service Encryption for all new and existing storage accounts. Your data is secured by default.
