Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is being used across the entire organization at this time. It is being customized for use with individual departments. We use it at my non-profit and I also operate it at a large, regional, mid-western electric and gas utility.

[Microsoft] Azure has allowed us to quickly and reliably connect to information across our network in a seamless fashion. We are able to share links and data very quickly. It also allows us the advantage to use PowerBI to access data from many different departments because they are all in one place.
  • The product is constantly evolving both in terms of features and user-friendliness.
  • Microsoft effectively tunes for their own applications
  • Microsoft Azure functions can run be hosted and run inside of Kubernetes. This allows solutions based on Azure functions cloud agnostic.
  • Could be easier to setup redundancy
  • Feels as if there are too many options, bells, and whistles you could add.
  • Microsoft Azure functions does not have a "Configure Services" method. Programming Azure functions has a slightly different programming model than does a "normal" API application. I would prefer that the startup process be identical.
  • Brings down Capex to customers.
  • Some of the built-in security features of DDoS Basic protection that comes with VNET on Azure or even WAF on AGW brings huge advantages to customers.
  • Hybrid benefits for those who have software assurance can save even more costs by moving to Azure.
Integration with other Microsoft products makes Azure stand out quite a bit. However, if you need to use open source software and to integrate with Linux systems then AWS or Google Cloud might be better alternatives. Google did not even come close to Azure in terms of capabilities and the business value offered.

Microsoft Azure is a cost-effective solution for organizations who want to spend their capital expenditure optimally. It is also a one-stop solution for acquiring multiple services from Microsoft. However, Microsoft Azure is not for organizations who are not willing to take the risk of having one vendor as both infrastructure and platform provider.
