Microsoft Azure File Storage Review

Great embedded integration with the entire Azure platform

What is our primary use case?

We are partners with Microsoft and I'm an executive of the company.  

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the integration with the entire Azure platform, very bluntly and very simply how it's embedded, how you can use it. That's the sort of factor that sets the solution apart. 

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see integration with other platforms as part of the solution. If you have a company to do cloud strategy that could have an impact.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. It's one of the strengths of the product. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We have support staff within the company. I have never ever had the need to call anybody from Microsoft support. If we do call support on other matters, then our directors have links to Microsoft, but I've never had the need for myself. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. Deployment time depends on the size of the project but it's easy and simple.  

What other advice do I have?

I would certainly recommend this product, especially if you are working with the Microsoft and Azure ecosystem, because then it's really easy to be used and you get all the benefits and I can't think of any reason not to like it. Once you're on the platform, it should be that it's more a question of how strong the solution is. 
I would rate this solution a nine out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Microsoft Azure
