Overall Satisfaction with Windows Azure

Our Consulting Firm uses Azure for clients on specific projects. Azure is an excellent Cloud solution that helps offset the cost of development by allowing rapid setup and deployment. It also help provide enterprise cloud solutions. As we work with companies to develop new ideas and better infrastructure cloud is often an excellent choice to improve quality and mobile access in particular.
  • Rapid Development: This allows for quick setup of servers and services.
  • Mobile Services: Azure has everything to create awesome simple mobile services
  • Performance: Azure Performance is exceptional and I have seen improvements of internal datacenters
  • Billing: The Billing can be somewhat confusing and in some cases higher than Amazon and other cloud providers
  • Debugging can be confusing at times
  • IaaS: Is still not as strong as other providers
  • Positive: It has helped to deliver solutions extremely fast and with high quality
  • Employees are able to quickly prototype solutions and using the MSDN it has no cost.
I have reviewed Amazon. Amazon is better for Linux and for IaaS solutions. Azure seems to be way ahead in Platform as a Service (PaaS). This helps with rapid development and deployment.
The Rapid development of cloud services and SQL azure with Azure storage is amazing and can help time to market hugely.

Using Windows Azure

I believe that Azure will help clients to develop mobile solutions and is especially helpful for clients using .Net
