Overall Satisfaction with Azure Virtual Machines

We are using Azure Virtual Machines for our core development and production servers and we found Azure Virtual Machines as one of the best cloud virtual machines due to their burst internet bandwidth which provides better accessibility to the services deployed on Azure Virtual Machines. Azure Virtual Machines are the best when coupled with other Azure services.
  • Low pricing.
  • Virtual Machines are very responsive.
  • Compatible with other providers.
  • Deployment process must be easy as compared to other providers.
  • Linux support must be enhanced.
  • Pricing model needs to be more convenient.
  • Backups are on-time and readily available.
  • Up-time is as promised by Microsoft.
  • Virtual Machines are very responsive.
Amazon EC2 provides a cost-friendly server hosting platform but the underlying infrastructure of Azure Virtual Machines is way more speedy and responsive than AWS. We have a 40:60 ratio of our servers deployed on Azure and Amazon and I can tell you how responsive and cost-friendly Azure Virtual Machines are.

Do you think Azure Virtual Machines delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Azure Virtual Machines's feature set?


Did Azure Virtual Machines live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Azure Virtual Machines go as expected?


Would you buy Azure Virtual Machines again?


Azure Virtual Machines are best suited for internet-hungry applications as it provides great internet bandwidth. We have used it for our .Net development and found the VMs very responsive. Azure Virtual Machines must provide the same internet latency for Linux-based OS. Support for services is very good with the Microsoft OS but Azure Virtual Machines needs to improve the compatibility issues with the Linux OS.
