  • Azure provides many free tools, such as QuickStart templates and the Azure SDK. It simplifies the process of creating apps for programmers.
  • A large group of people uses the same tools to collaborate and find solutions to problems that they are all facing simultaneously.
  • Setting up a repository for our work and making our code publicly available are made simple by Azure's built-in support for Git.
  • Recovering from DRSync server failures is not always easy. Upon completion of the fail-back, our on-premises servers became unresponsive. After the fail-back, we must restart our servers.
  • 5TB is insufficient for file synchronization per directory. Unfortunately, technical support is not up to standard. Customizing WVD images is still a challenge.
