We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"If you compare with the full bundle of these services, you can see the difference. This is enough for these locations in private data centers. Because the main reasons why the customers want to have it on their side are for the low latency and the security of their critical data."
"The scalability of the solution is good. We have hundreds of users internally and thousands of users externally. We do plan to increase usage shortly."
"The initial setup is very, very simple."
"It's a good and cost effective solution for any organization. We can deploy the tech solution on premises and also in the cloud."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of deployment for services such as SSH, creating a web site, and Azure billing services to measure the consumption of resources."
"It is very easy to learn and apply to other things."
"The best thing about this product is that it is user-friendly and intuitive."
"The setup is very straightforward and it's quite stable."
"The stability is good. We haven't had any issues with the viability or scalability. It's been good so far."
"The pricing model needs improvement because right now it's very expensive. All of these solutions are very expensive and it prevents other customers or owners of data centers from buying it."
"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. Online training would also be a beneficial addition to the product."
"As opposed to AWS, Azure is a costly solution. It's on par with AWS more than anything else."
"Pricing is always a hot topic, so the pricing can always improve."
"We are satisfied with the pricing."
"It is in the medium range cost-wise. For each component, I sort of buy licensing. Each component has its licensing fee by the number of users or by size."
"The pricing is very expensive."
"In terms of costs, it is a standard price, and there is no negotiation."
"Azure Stack is expensive."
"Azure Stack is cheaper than AWS."
