Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The incorporation of several kinds of storage, such as SSD Premium, enhanced the performance of machines.""The scalability is good.""The most valuable feature is the single sign-on with multifactor authentication.""We are going to use Microsoft Azure to move some on-premise servers into the cloud so that our data can be held there.""The data factory feature.""The time to market is fast compared back to the traditional on-premise hosting. That is one of the better things I can say because there is no need to worry. The Pack services will enable it to start immediately.""It comes with a lot of ready-made studies that we can connect with other existing Microsoft applications, for example, Office, Outlook, Chatline, and OneDrive. Everything is behind the scenes running with Azure. It's easy to build the connectors.""The most valuable features are the interface and customizability."

More Microsoft Azure Pros »

"This solution is providing a platform with OOTB features that are difficult to build from scratch.""We are able to operate client’s platform without downtime during security patch management each month and provide a good SLA (as scalability for applications is processed during heavy client website load, automatically).""The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications.""Provides support throughout the whole platform."

Cons
"Virtual networks might be improved by adding more rules for the validation of protocols and peripheral elements in security assurance.""I would like to see more advanced functionality in terms of information security.""The subscription licensing is very complex and we would like to have it simplified.""Microsoft Azure can be pretty advanced and difficult to understand. I would like it to be simplified. The licensing especially needs to be simplified.""Auto ML could be improved technically.""There were also a lot of constraints with the serverless parts.""They are a bit closed on the customization side. If they open the customization then it will be very good.""Dashboards and reporting could be improved."

More Microsoft Azure Cons »

"If we can have a GUI-based configuration with better flexibility then it will be great.""Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions.""The solution only offers support for one server."

More OpenShift Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing fees are more than $1,000,000 USD annually.""Reducing the price would be of benefit to our customers.""The pricing for us is higher because we are using IaaS.""Pricing of Microsoft Azure services depends on the build of what you prepare to deploy.""It is important to consider ROI when looking at the cost of a subscription.""The cost is a little high and can be more competitive.""Monthly billing convenience reduced cost overheads up to 70 percent.""The pricing model is subscription-based and it's not an expensive solution."

Top Answer: The solution should emulate what MuleSoft is doing. At the moment MuleSoft has a lot of other features compared to Azure API integration. Just the coverage of the features, for example, could improve… more »
Top Answer: Provides support throughout the whole platform.
Top Answer: I'd like to see support for more than one server, a mobile user registry. With that, you could divide it more granulary for development and render for testing and using different IDs.
Top Answer: We're using this solution for newly developed applications in house development applications. I'm an infrastructure architect and we are customers of Open Shift.
