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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Azure Stack Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This solutuion can be expensive for small and medium-sized companies.""The pricing can be more competitive.""The licensing is expensive compared with Hyper V and Unitech's platform.""If our customer has the option to buy a server for $4,000 or $5,000, but VMware asks for two-person licensing $7,000 to $8,000, which is more than the hardware price. So sometimes, the customer cannot pay for it because it's too expensive."
