We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is expensive for us. We are looking for something less expensive and thinking of migrating the whole system."
"It is reasonable."
"It is quite expensive. I would definitely recommend not using the pay-as-you-go model because this will just mean all your money will go to Microsoft. So, really make sure to control resource usage as much as possible."
"It's reasonably priced and when you compare it with other products in the cloud environment, it's cheaper."
"I have an annual spend number, and it is in the hundred thousand dollar range. There are no additional costs to the standard licensing fees. Even though you have to look at the cost numbers of what you're going to be charged on a monthly basis, what you have to also remember is that your application may need a lot of rewriting and things like that. You get charged not just for the monthly costs but also for the transactions that occur. If your access to the data layer is not so efficient, your costs will go up because you're pulling far more data than you potentially need. These are hidden costs that nobody ever considers. If your application is not written very efficiently, you may actually increase your costs over on-prem versus cloud."
"It is expensive. Snowflake and PostgreSQL are cheaper than this. Google is also cheaper than Azure. Its licensing is on a pay-as-you-go basis. It is based on usage and storage."
"It requires a license. As compared to its competitors, such as Oracle, it is affordable and reasonable."
"There is a license required to use the solution and it cost $30 to do the installation."
