Azure Stack Review

A scalable, stable solution with a wide variety of use cases

What is our primary use case?

There are multiple use cases for us in regards to this solution, including IoT, DevOps, storage, analytics, and many, many other scenarios.

How has it helped my organization?

We use it for our periodic builds, and for our source control.

What is most valuable?

The IoT, DevOps, microservices, micro functions, and storage are all valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The solution should be more open to allowing access to other tools and environments.

Technical support also needs a lot of improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is good. We have hundreds of users internally and thousands of users externally. We do plan to increase usage shortly.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very poor. When we meet Microsoft in the coming weeks to discuss expansion, we'll be speaking to them directly about this.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we used AWS.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was quite a long time ago, so I don't remember the details of the implementation.

What about the implementation team?

We received some help with the implementation from Microsoft.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the on-premises deployment model.

I would advise others considering implementing the solution to ensure they understand the solution to a high degree, as they won't get much help from technical support if they have questions.

I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
