Armor

For managed security hosting, Armor can hardly be beat. Expensive but worth it.

Microsoft Azure

If you are going to use Azure solely as VM farm then it's easy to migrate. If you plan to move a legacy application auch as Azure Native, migration can be tricky. For example we had one application that had a third party (blue rhino) element and it had some compatibility issues that we had to re-write our app. Another would be moving an Oracle database to Azure as it needs to be the new version of Oracle. Azure Cloud doesn't accept Oracle 9G.

Cons

  • It would be great if the server dashboard was more stable. Where we seem to have most of our issues is when adding/removing servers and manual scales.
  • I would like a view into my firewalls so I can actually see what is open/closed even if I can't specifically configure it from there.
  • I would prefer my new account managers introduce themselves instead of just appearing out of nowhere when I've emailed our old account manager for something.

  • The user interface works slowly on moderns browsers like Chrome and Firefox.
  • In some cases, it is hard to find what we want in the user interface.
  • Sometimes terminating (shutting down) a virtual machine does not succeed properly and the VM remains running in the background, billing it.

As a VP i'm not your typical technical person and I'm able to easily use Azure in technical matters so I believe 9 is correct rating.

It has proven to be unreliable in our production environment and services become unavailable without proper notification to system administrators

Support

Approximately 50% of all messages we receive are automated. Either that an agent will be assigned, has been assigned, or a ticket is closed. I'd like to see more 'real' interaction, and less box ticking, though I appreciate process has to be followed. That's the one point off. Everything else is very good.

The only reason I didn't give it a 10 rating as support is expensive.

As I have mentioned before the issue with my Oracle Mismatch Version issues that have put a delay on moving one of my platforms will justify my 7 rating.
