"Technical support is very poor. When we meet Microsoft in the coming weeks to discuss expansion, we'll be speaking to them directly about this.""I think the monitoring tools needs some improvement.""Customers need to consider the Disaster Recovery. Microsoft tech is only providing support to Azure.""I would like to see better support for containers.""There are some minor issues or bugs with it that I know are there.""The setup for Azure becomes more complex when you have multiple users and multiple organizations using the same solution, but this is to be expected.""The solution could use more training materials to help users understand how to use the product effectively.

Overview

AWS Outposts bring native AWS services, infrastructure, and operating models to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility. You can use the same APIs, the same tools, the same hardware, and the same functionality across on-premises and the cloud to deliver a truly consistent hybrid experience.
