It provides easy versioning and great security

What is our primary use case?

We are using Microsoft Azure Block Storage to accumulate and store all unstructured data, that is, different files such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, or any other streaming or video files. Whenever there is any unstructured data, you can use the Microsoft Azure Block Storage to deal with it.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has easy versioning. The versioning is amenable to any changes. It also has great security. It can only be accessed through an API, and only the requested users can access it. It is optimized for data lakes and comprehensive data management."
  • "We need to do versioning each and every time, that is, check-in and check-out. If a person forgets to do that, then there could be an issue in the replacement of that particular object in the storage. It will be great if it can be automatically managed."

What other advice do I have?

I have worked on similar solutions from Oracle and Amazon. Feature-wise, they all provide the same features. However, I found Azure more convenient to work on than other solutions. It is very easy to use for data analytics purposes as well as for storing the archive data or long-term use data, that is, non-relational and unstructured data. I would rate Microsoft Azure Block Storage a ten out of ten. It is really good.

A reliable solution that improves the security of our data

What is our primary use case?

I was trying to close the gap using CloudBerry in conjunction with Google Cloud Storage. This is a public cloud deployment model.

Pros and Cons

  • "Using this solution has improved the security of our data."
  • "The user experience needs to be simplified."

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution because it's established and reliable, although it is not so simple to configure. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
