Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure has been our platform of choice since 2015. We initially implemented a backup solution but grew into the environment as we required more and more resources. Now we take advantage of the ecosystem consisting of websites, SQL servers, virtual machines just to name a few.
  • All the apps are quickly configurable by only a few pages of clearly defined options.
  • The speed of deployment is incredible - websites, databases and virtual machines are up and running in minutes.
  • The product is constantly evolving both in terms of features and user-friendliness.
  • The pricing model is too complex, making it difficult to evaluate and compare with different solutions.
  • The console is somewhat cluttered compared to, for example, Google Cloud.
  • The support is very basic without the extra support plan purchased.
  • The implementation was surprisingly fast and issue-free.
  • We are able to quickly meet client demands by the ease of deployment of the assets.
  • The elastic scalability saves the otherwise redundant resources.
Microsoft Azure might be a bit overwhelming thanks to the complex environment consisting of a vast number of assets included. It certainly involves a learning curve for a thorough understanding of the menu structure, but at the end of the day, the savings and advantages are worth the initial hassle.
The support is not the best feature, especially without the extra support plan. The staff was trying to help, but not overly efficient.
We have settled with Microsoft Azure considered its effective administration and the ability to data visualization and analysis, together with the top-notch security/stability.
The functionality of Microsoft Azure is impressive. Creating assets such as virtual machines or databases is incredibly fast and straight forward. The system is infinitely scalable, making it future proof and taking care of the hassle of future upgrades.
Any company that plans to move its own infrastructure to the cloud should consider Microsoft Azure for the costs reduction together with the security backed by Microsoft.
