Overall Satisfaction with Azure Virtual Machines

In our company, all of the VM infrastructure used for production and corporate needs is in the Azure cloud and we Use Azure Virtual Machines for all of our needs. The only exception, when we don't use this product in the Azure cloud, is when we use Azure Virtual Machine Scale Sets. Azure Virtual Machines come with different hardware configurations and it can suit any need - there are small VMs for testing and DEV and there are very large VMs as well built for higher performance of the production environment.
  • You can login to Azure VMs using SSO with your Azure Ad account
  • Azure VMs are securely accessible from anywhere in the world, with Azure Bastion
  • You can execute scripts on the VM from the Azure portal without logging in to it
  • No hot plug available when increasing VM hardware
  • SSO for Windows WMs is somewhat limited
  • Positive: pricing - reservations are available to further decrease costs
  • Positive: pricing - you are only paying when VM is up

For those who use the Azure cloud, Azure Virtual Machine is the best option for Compute resources, it provides flexible pricing plans, worldwide availability and almost any scale that you will need without wasting too much time for these resources to become available. In Azure Cloud, serverless Compute is also available, so for specific usecases, this can be used instead of Azure Virtual Machines.
