Microsoft Azure Review

Competitively priced, but the interface needs to be more user-friendly


What is our primary use case?

It's similar to AWS.

It's an infrastructure as a service.

What is most valuable?

It's a cloud service, so it's always up to date.

What needs improvement?

If you compare it with AWS, it is not very friendly to use. I find the UI better to work with on AWS.

They easily provide service with Windows, but not with Linux.

For how long have I used the solution?

I am a beginner, and only been using Microsoft Azure for a couple of months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Microsoft Azure is pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable product. Because it's a cloud service, there is an infinite opportunity for scaling.

We only have one or two people who are using this solution in our organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

I reached out to support once, but they were not that quick to respond.

Technical support could be faster.

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

I have experience with AWS and Microsoft Azure is not that friendly. It is a bit complicated compared to AWS.

How was the initial setup?

It's a cloud service. There is no installation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is expensive, but it is less expensive than AWS.

Even with it being cheaper than AWS, the price could be cheaper.

It is similar to AWS, where it is on-demand and is billed monthly.

What other advice do I have?

We are not currently using this solution and we are not sure if we will be using it in the future.

 For those who are connected to the Windows Operating System, I would recommend this product. However, I would not recommend it for a Linux environment.

I would rate this solution a seven 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
