Microsoft Azure

[Microsoft] Azure provides a great "get up and running" environment particularly when you need to map multiple resources together, such as database, web app, storage, and analytics. The "Application Insights" feature is particularly strong because it allows you to do a "one click" install of an agent that can track performance and transactions all the way down to the database level. The [Microsoft] Azure dashboard allows you to easily find resources you need and access the current resources you have. Setting up new resources also uses a well managed "wizard" like structure to make it easy.

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

OpenShift is well suited if you want to use docker and kubernetes but you want to hide the complexity of these two technologies. It gives a developer much more freedom in terms of code deployment, build process and implementation. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure for each application.

Pros

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

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.

Such a great platform for a novice or expert to use. There is significant training available to learn how to do complex things with little to know background doing them before. Especially if you live close to a Microsoft training center, they offer many courses for free on site. Even if not, the virtual training they provide is also free and plentiful.

Microsoft products are well-known for 24x7 global coverage of customer support. They also sometimes come with a multiple support plan, which caters to different business requirements and needs. However, more support will also mean more cost to bare. Other than that, limited options in technical training sometimes make it quite challenging in finding the right talents for managing Microsoft Azure clouds and more dependency in Microsoft technical support.

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.

Microsoft Azure

  • With Hybrid Cloud, organizations can integrate onsite servers with Cloud instances.
  • Machines are grouped into cloud service and respond to the same domain name with various ports
  • High performance, Low cost
  • Multiple Storage Services
  • Native MS SQL Database & No SQL support
  • Little Cheaper than piers
  • Offers inbuilt tool like Azure stack to help the organization deliver Azure service from the own data center

We tested Red Hat OpenShift on premise but we decided to go for a public cloud to reduce our infrastructure and pay for what we use.

Return on Investment

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.
