SQL Azure Review

A simpler database than its competitors

What is most valuable?

We use it for a few databases that are deployed for our own purposes. 

SQL is a simpler database. We use it more than other databases. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using SQL Azure for three to four months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had any issues with performance. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There are only three users who use it. Once we are more comfortable we will give it to more users. My technology team uses it. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Microsoft technical support is good. 

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

Pricing is reasonable for a big enterprise. The price is a little higher. It should have a 20% discount. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate SQL Azure an eight out of ten. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud
