Microsoft Azure Review

Easy to use, good integration with Active Directory, and quick support

What is our primary use case?

We use Azure for storage, virtual machines, virtual networking, and our VPN.

We have the Microsoft Firewall set up, and we use Blob Storage.

There are many different features we use, based on different requirements.

What is most valuable?

The feature that we like best is integration with Active Directory.

Azure is easy to use.

What needs improvement?

It would be advantageous if the dashboard had more clarity, in terms of the visibility that it provides. The challenge that we are facing has to do with resources and the grouping of them. We have different services that we use and we cannot see all of them until we filter the resource group.

Having inbuilt security would be an improvement. As it is now, Microsoft has a sentinel as a security tool, where you need to integrate it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Microsoft Azure for more than three years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product. We have between 50 and 100 people who are using it, and most of them are software developers.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support is very good, and they respond within an hour.

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

We use AWS as well as Azure.

How was the initial setup?

Normally, we log in and then we roll out the services for instances that we want, based on the requirements. It only takes a couple of minutes to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

We deploy this product ourselves and we have a DevOps engineer who takes care of the maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good product. We definitely plan to continue using it in the future and I recommend it to others.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

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
