Overall Satisfaction with Azure Virtual Machines

As a large organization, we use Azure Virtual Machines in multiple projects and for multiple customers. We are a center of excellence team that provides a lot of new product evaluations and for that one of our preferred
platforms is Azure Virtual Machines, it's more stable and user-friendly. We also use it internally
for different tool deployments.
  • We need to deploy tools in multiple different platforms like Windows and Linux, it gives flexibility and easy deployment with configurations for our testing.
  • Azure monitoring comes with the Azure subscription which helps us to quickly monitor Azure health and also quickly integrates with enterprise solutions.
  • I believe for longer commitments, Azure discounts could have been better.
  • As I already mentioned our organization is huge and multiple different projects are using Azure Virtual Machines as their digital transformation platform and migrations are happing right now.
I have tested AWS EC2 instances, however, we chose
Azure Virtual Machines as we use SCOM as an enterprise monitoring solution and it goes very well
with Azure as monitoring. We have a lot of customers on Azure and monitoring the Azure environment with SCOM is easy through
Azure MP.

As a Tool CoE Team, we need to evaluate multiple different tools available in the market and we need to
deploy on multiple different platforms like Windows and
Linux, It is well suited for these types of scenarios where we can quickly deploy
and test the product capabilities.
There may be scenarios where Azure Virtual Machines may be less appropriate but I haven’t come across any so far.
