Microsoft Azure

The answer depends upon the kind of [use case]. If the use-case is simply around the need of IaaS then Azure is not the right choice. However, if the use-cases are around BOT services, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Machine Learning[,] and Business Analytics then Azure is the first choice. Also[,] kind of eco-system the enterprise [has] on the premise to run their daily operations have the highest bearing to choose for the cloud partner.

Pros

Dell EMC RecoverPoint

  • EMC recoverpoint does it's core functions of DVR like replication extremely well. It integrates perfectly with VMware vsphere and SRM and is relatively simple to configure.
  • EMC recoverpoint handles failover and failback very well, either manually or through the SRM interface.
  • EMC recoverpoint physical is relatively easy to run once installed and configured!!

Microsoft Azure

  • Azure Functions is the easiest serverless service to work with in my experience. Easy to ship Node.js functions without bundling dependencies.
  • Proactive and responsive support. We've worked with most other cloud providers - Amazon, Google, Oracle. Amazon Web Services' customer support is a black hole and their documentation is worthless. Google and Oracle are better, but Azure's support is responsive and their docs are pretty good.
  • Azure's Web UI is pretty easy to work with

Cons

Dell EMC RecoverPoint

  • EMC RecoverPoint isn't easier to install and or set up. You will need to know how to zone, understand SAN and networking.
  • It's hard to understand how many disks to use based on the RTO and RPO for the replication set.
  • Will still need professional service and training to really understand how to use the software.

Microsoft Azure

  • Could be easier to setup redundancy
  • Feels as if there are too many options, bells, and whistles you could add.
  • Microsoft Azure functions does not have a "Configure Services" method. Programming Azure functions has a slightly different programming model than does a "normal" API application. I would prefer that the startup process be identical.

Moving to Azure was and still is an organizational strategy and not simply changing vendors. Our product roadmap revolved around Azure as we are in the business of humanitarian relief and Azure and Microsoft play an important part in quickly and efficiently serving all of the world. Migration and investment in Azure should be considered as an overall strategy of an organization and communicated companywide.

Microsoft Azure's overall usability has been better than expected. Often times vendors promise the world, only to leave you with a run-down town. Not the case with our experience. From an implementation perspective, all went perfect, and from the user-facing experience we have had no technical issues, just some learning curve issues that are more about "why" than "how"

Support is easy with all the knowledge base articles available for free on the web. Plus, if you have a preferred status you can leverage their concierge support to get rapid response. Sometimes they’ll bounce you around a lot to get you to the right person, but they are quite responsive (especially when you are paying for the service). Many of the older Microsoft skills are also transferable from old-school on-prem to Azure-based virtual interfaces.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Dell EMC RecoverPoint

Zerto was selected to compete against recoverpoint.. Zerto was a virtual solution that doesn't work for physical solutions. Recoverpoint was chosen over Zerto because of the need to replicate and protect physical systems, versus just VMs. Zerto is under strong consideration as the environment is becoming more virtualize through the next few months.

Microsoft Azure

As I continue to evaluate the "big three" cloud providers for our clients, I make the following distinctions, though this gap continues to close. AWS is more granular, and inherently powerful in the configuration options compared to [Microsoft] Azure. It is a "developer" platform for cloud. However, Azure PowerShell is helping close this gap. Google Cloud is the leading containerization platform, largely thanks to it building kubernetes from the ground up. Azure containerization is getting better at having the same storage/deployment options.

Return on Investment

Dell EMC RecoverPoint

  • We perform DR test in every six months and recoverpoint (vRPA) simplified our DR strategy. The solution saved lot of time and helped our team to minimize the DR window. It provides a reliable and repeatable automated DR workflow that increases data protection and recovery operational efficiencies. Silent test recovery and replicate VMs without impacting production site and bring down our RPO/RTOs to meet business needs is one of the key benefit.

Microsoft Azure

  • It has taken a few years of planning and growth (which continue), but we've been able to successfully budget and plan for ever increased capacity by starting first with some Virtual Machines and factoring in on-prem maintenance vs cloud constant improvements. VM (server, compute, networking) costs even out quickly over time and will show savings very soon.
  • Because of Azure Application Gateways (which cost very little to set up and maintain), we were able to build a state of the art single-sign-on hub for all of our users and other enterprise platforms (mostly non-Microsoft and non Azure systems), reducing the amount of time to switch among these for workers and increasing overall productivity.
  • With Azure Active Directory, we do not need to maintain separate identity systems and can more easily integrate our organizations credentials into authorization for access to other systems.
