Stable, easy to provision and administer, and natural progression to SQL Server

Pros and Cons

  • "The ease of provisioning and administration is most valuable."
  • "It should have better profiling capabilities."

What is our primary use case?

We are using it for business intelligence and analytics.

What is most valuable?

The ease of provisioning and administration is most valuable.

What needs improvement?

It should have better profiling capabilities. Its price could also be lower.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had any outages yet, so it is pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We haven't hit any limits yet, but we're not running huge workloads.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't had a need for technical support.

How was the initial setup?

It is easy. I'm busy setting up another one now.

What about the implementation team?

I did it myself.

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

I would like it to be cheaper, but comparatively, it is reasonably priced.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered Postgres in AWS as well as AWS Redshift and AWS Athena.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it. We're very happy with what we have. It is very familiar because of our experience with on-premise SQL Server. If you are used to working with SQL Server, it is a natural progression.

I would rate SQL Azure an eight out of 10.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud
