We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Integration with the entire Azure platform."
"The initial setup is fairly easy."
"The interface is very good."
"It was quick to synchronize back from Azure to the on-premise server."
"The solution can scale to fit any requirement."
"General user familiarity with Office 365 products make adopting this solution easy to adopt in production."
"Basically, I set Wasabi up and forget it. I'll monitor it every once in a while just to make sure that it's working correctly."
"The pricing could be improved. They need to make the costs more transparent so users know what they will be charged and why ahead of time."
"The initial setup is complex. Unless you have done it a few times it, it is going to be hard."
"Microsoft Azure File Storage is not that scalable. Once you reach the boundaries, you need to migrate to another solution."
"The solution should support all the legacy storage systems."
"The storage account key could be a security issue."
"Lacks integration with other platforms."
"I don't have enough experience to understand the nuances of where they might improve."
"For one terabyte of data, we are spending about 150 Euro every month."
"I can only tell you that Wasabi costs about half what Amazon Web Services is charging. Now, the cost per month is a more difficult question. That varies depending on the capacity, the services you're employing, and that type of thing."
