What is most valuable?

The broad access capability is probably the most valuable feature. It provides access with hardly any physical infrastructure.

What needs improvement?

I would definitely say that the user interface could be improved, for sure. Azure Search could stand to be more user-friendly in general from the initial setup on. The documentation for the setup should be simplified and have more exacting detail. I do not think it is well executed and as helpful as it should be.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others considering this product is to just do your research beforehand. Know what you want and what you are getting yourself into as far as the product capabilities. You probably want to try the product as a test to see how it works for you. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Azure Search as probably a six-out-of-ten.

What is Azure Search?

Azure Search is a search-as-a-service cloud solution that gives developers APIs and tools for adding a rich search experience over your data in web, mobile, and enterprise applications. Functionality is exposed through a simple REST API or .NET SDK that masks the inherent complexity of search technology. In addition to APIs, the Azure portal provides administration and prototyping support. Infrastructure and availability are managed by Microsoft.
