Overall Satisfaction with Azure Virtual Machines

Azure Virtual Machine plays a very important role in our organization. We are using Azure VMs to built and deploy software for our engineers, for keeping the project data, deploying websites, and system builts.
Each virtual machine is customized with respect to computing, network, and storage which is decided by us keeping in mind the exact requirement.
  • Azure managed disks have excellent read/write operations.
  • VNET and VNET gateway provided networking and routing ability for the VM traffic.
  • Provisioning of the VM becomes slow while adding a customized script.
  • The pay as you go model helps saves cost.
  • We segregate the virtual machines in different resource groups and hence can setup auto shutdown as per their type and requirement.
Azure Virtual Machines are much more efficient with respect to the scalability options and the pricing model being offered to the end-users.
