Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Azure

It's being used across the whole organization via Active Directory, but our primary use is for hosting our websites. It provides a lot of customizability and functionality that most web hosts don't offer, and it gives us the flexibility that we need, with a great balance of performance and price. It's pretty bleeding edge and they provide solutions for pretty much anything you can think of through their marketplace. Highly recommended.
  • Customizability. Compared to other cloud providers, it's incredibly easy to make large, complex deployments rather quickly, and it gives you very granular control over every aspect of your deployment. Additionally, with PowerShell integration, you can do massive, system-wide changes via shell scripting.
  • Stability. VM stability is excellent. We've been on them for over 2 years, and haven't had a single outage that affected us, and any time we've had downtime, it was due to mistakes on our end.
  • Ease of use. Everything is really easy to find and configure. Fantastic UI.
  • Support. Their support is exactly as you're used to with Microsoft. Difficult to get a hold of, and we've had issues with tickets being lost and issues not being solved in a timely manner.
  • It has saved us lots of time and money. Well worth implementing.
[It is well suited for] website hosting, high-performance cloud-based SQL Server databases. [It has] deployment templates,
advanced features such as load-balancing, high availability groups, web apps, serverless architecture (Azure Functions), other bleeding-edge features and excellent documentation.
