Azure Virtual Machines

I recommend Azure Virtual Machines to setup cost effective webserver for deployment of applications either for the customer or just for testing in live cloud environment. You can customize the specifications of each virtual machine to match the computing, network, and storage requirements of application and / or customer. It will enable to you to provide access of applications to your customers in very efficient and cost-effective manner. The integration support of Azure Virtual Machines with other services inside Microsoft Azure will help to built better data transportation and excellent application structure.

Nerdio

Nerdio manages our servers - file and exchange, and it has been the perfect solution for our office, allowing our users access from any desktop or laptop, no matter the location. As many of us work after hours, we always have access to our files/data... and works well for us whether we're on meetings or need information. Can't imagine going back and not having the ability to work remotely.

Nerdio

  • Default printers! If you work form home and it will switch up your printers. Even if you don't work from home it will switch it sometimes.
  • Disk space seems a little expensive too :(

I give the overall support for Azure Virtual Machines a 7 because I think while the overall support do a great job there are still areas that it could improve on such as efficiency and speed. So while I only give it a 7 and it has some issues it is still better than the overall support at Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling.

Azure Virtual Machines are much more efficient with respect to the scalability options and the pricing model being offered to the end-users.

We moved to this solution when there was only a limited number of vendors offering this type of work environment... and after talking to colleagues who initially selected other vendors, they were happy to make the switch to AdarIT/Nerdio.
