SQL Azure Review

An good solution for a small/medium sized business with excellent technical support


What is our primary use case?

It's a platform that we leverage for multiple uses. There isn't a specific primary use case for the solution.

What needs improvement?

The concurrency between the amount of the transactional replications and the logging needs to be improved. Also, the GUI, the specific management tool itself, needs some improvement as well.

It's not a feature, but the solution only offers a certain amount of memory and that's limiting. The scalability should be extended to more than two terabytes.  

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for more than ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of stability, because Microsoft is the underlying technology, they are much more stable than Oracle, for example. Since 2014 they did a great job in offering stability, performance and high visibility on the solution, especially in comparison to other competitors.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been excellent.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I didn't previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy.

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

I'm not sure what the exact price is, but it's a moderate amount. It's not too expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises version of the solution. I would rate it nine out of ten. I would definitely recommend it to an SMB, a small or medium-sized business.
