Overall Satisfaction with Azure Managed Disks
We are currently using Azure Managed Disks as a cloud storage option to dynamically increase or decrease disk space on demand. By utilizing Azure Managed Disks we can quickly expand or contract as the demand is needed by the business. Some days we need more space than others so this allows us to keep our costs low.
- Dynamic allocation of space
- Ease of set up
- Ease of Management
- UI could be more streamlined
- Better Help Documentation
- Positive ROI as we have decreased our disk Cost
- Positive as we have less downtime
- Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)
Azure Managed Disks stacked up very well against Amazon Elastic Block Store. In the End it really came down to the fact we are running numerous other Microsoft Azure products and Azure Managed Disks would fit nicely into that ecosystem. We had less ramp up for training and learning issues.

Azure Managed Disks are best suited for large organizations that wish to keep their cloud costs under control. This cloud storage option allows for a high level of customization. I would not recommend for a small organization as the level of effort to set up and manage may be diminishing gains.
