Microsoft Azure Review

As a DBA, the easy maintenance and backups are key


What is our primary use case?

Installation of SQL Server, Cloudera Hadoop, and MySQL. The performance has been great.

How has it helped my organization?

The benefit is the time to generate all these machines. It's in the cloud so I don't feel it.

What is most valuable?

I come from the DBA side so for me it's the easy maintenance; backups are very easy as well.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more databases on the cloud, what they call today Big Data should be there. I think it's going in the right direction.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is great.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is also great.

How is customer service and technical support?

Personally, I have not used support, but the guys who do are happy with it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Cloudera.

What other advice do I have?

When choosing a vendor what's important to me are stability, a lot of features, variety, and good support.

My advice would be, try it using the free trial and I am sure you will be satisfied and take it.
