The solution needs better integration with Microsoft's Azure Cloud or an extension of Azure DevOps. In fact, it should better integrate with any cloud provider. Right now, it's quite difficult to integrate with that solution, from the cloud perspective.I'm not sure licensing, but on the pricing, it's a bit costly. It's a bit overpriced.
