What is our primary use case?
We are a solution provider and Microsoft Azure is one of the technologies that we help our clients to implement. For example, when one of our customers wants to migrate from on-premises to the cloud, we assist them with the process. Once they decide on technology, we build the solution.
Our clients implement Azure to use as Infrastructure as a Service.
What is most valuable?
The most valuable features are the interface and customizability.

There are no issues with scalability. We have a range of customers that vary in size from small to medium-sized businesses, as well as enterprise-level organizations.

I am happy with the good support that we are getting. I have not been in contact with them directly but some of my colleagues have dealt with them.
How was the initial setup?
The installation and initial setup are easy. We implemented over the course of a few days.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
Reducing the price would be of benefit to our customers.
What other advice do I have?
My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to do a proof of concept first. This is what I suggest to all of our customers, especially before migrating to the cloud. It will ensure that it meets the requirements.
I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
