DigAd3059 says in a Microsoft Azure review
Digital Ad-Operations at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
It was easy to deploy our applications on Azure. It provides more compatibility and scalability than the .NET application. This is why we chose to use Azure. View full review »

Jesus Carroll says in a Microsoft Azure review
Data Engineer at a tech consulting company with 1-10 employees
This solution has an easy and (almost) intuitive administration interface to set up and deploy elements. The incorporation of several kinds of storage, such as SSD Premium, enhanced the performance of machines. The Machine Learning library for remote calls using REST and SOAP, as well as the legacy integrations of hybrid clouds are useful. View full review »
Ajay Mendez says in an Amazon AWS review
Founder at a tech vendor with 1-10 employees
* It's pay-as-you-go. * It has a breadth of solutions for databases, data mining, AI. * They release new solutions almost every quarter and you don't get that kind of innovation from an enterprise company. View full review »
Edgar Parra says in a Microsoft Azure review
Senior Technical Consultant at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Azure Active Directory, Azure VMs, Azure network security groups (NSG), and monitoring endpoints across different regions to check how your platform operates from different geographic locations. Azure backups are another feature which are quite useful, especially since they allow us to backup our Azure VMs and our on-premise servers. Data can be backed up to Azure, saving time, space, and using clunky tapes to restore data, when needed. View full review »

reviewer1256961 says in a Google Firebase review
fullstack software developer with Python and angular in Google cloud platform at a university with 10,001+ employees
The Realtime Database feature is the most important for us since we are able to see changes in the database the moment they are happening. So, we built a real-time chat where users are able to talk with each other. Also, the push notifications on smartphones are another important feature that we discovered later, and it made a big impact on our portal. The Firebase functions that act as triggers to let you know when there are changes in the database are very helpful. Another important feature would be the SDK. You do not have to create an API since you are able to query the database directly from JavaScript or any other language. View full review »

SaleemKhokhar says in a SAP S/4HANA on AWS review
Director at Peritus
There are two main features that we find very valuable. One is the interface and the new user experience. That's really, really helpful for the end-user. The second is the HANA database itself because it speeds up the process. In other solutions, like Oracle, there is a lot of redundancy that slows things down. View full review »

AlvinStarr says in a Google Compute Engine review
IT Support with 51-200 employees
All of the cloud solution providers are basically the same. There's a little bit around the edges that is different. Each provider has its own kind of unique products but for the most part, 90% of the coverage between all of them is the same. View full review »
Sameer Quraishi says in an Oracle Cloud review
Information Security Officer at Zamil
The solution offers many features and it is a complete replica of our data center. The one thing that is very high level is that it covers multiple regions to host our application. You don't have to worry about disaster recovery. You, therefore, don't have to invest in additional features - it is there by default. The solution has a huge capacity so you don't need to worry about that. View full review »

Lukman Ottun says in a DigitalOcean review
Head Of Application Technology at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The managed database service is what I really like as it really simplifies the setup of a database infrastructure. With the availability of backups and point-in-time recovery, logs & query dashboard, using the managed database service would ultimately result in reduction in cost attached to setting up such robust DB infrastructure.
