 Azure subscriptions

Azure subscriptions consist of two parameters: a unique subscriber ID / Azure account, a billing and a set of available resources. For an individual developer, that would include one Microsoft account ID, a credit card number and the full suite of Azure services.

Subscriptions get more complicated, however enterprises use consolidated billing and have central controls over accounts, subscription creation and resource usage.

Each account can have one or more Azure subscriptions, and the service administrators can manage individual subscriptions, monitor billing and usage, manage security at each subscription separately . Account owners can add any available subscriptions to their accounts. depicted in following image.
