What is most valuable?

The main thing that is valuable about the solution is just the reason you do cloud: because it is flexible. For example, right now we are working on a project for a client and they are entirely involved with the Azure suite. They are using Intune for MDM (Mobile Device Management) and Azure AD for their authentication. That is all nice and well and good, but then they need a server. So what we are… more»

What needs improvement?

I think the place where the product really needs the most attention is in the Intune and the MDM products. They are building it out pretty quickly in updates, yet at the same time that is probably the place where I have seen the most reason to simplifying for ease-of-use. Right now you kind of have to spend some time to wrap your head around the product instead of it being something that is easier… more»

What other advice do I have?

We try to push as many clients as we can toward Azure because most of our clients are Office 365 clients as it stands already, so they already have Azure integrated. They have the authentication and because of that, it allows us to push Azure a little easier because it is already native to the products they are using and familiar to their users. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst… more»

What is most valuable?

I like the diverse facilities offered by the solution. If a facility tool upgrades, it also upgrades in the cloud. This is very dynamic. Is it very easy to manage and we haven't had any problems with file system limitations or performances. The backup to the firewall has been working well. I like… more»

What needs improvement?

So far we haven't had any difficulties with migrations. Sometimes I call support to help me with the migration of the servers. So far it has been all very easy.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have a small contract with Amazon, but I don't use that very often because it doesn't offer that much storage.

What other advice do I have?

Implementations with other products are easy. In the past we had to use a multi-cloud, but we had a preference for one unique tool for each subject that we wanted to manage. So now we are using one cloud only. We had a very new team and we were building everything from scratch. I will rate this… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution is easy to use and works well. We've been happy with the monitoring capabilities. The interface is very good. The setup is easy.

What needs improvement?

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. Technical support could be improved.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is a little bit hard to determine. I never know how much it's going to cost me in advance, only after the fact.

What other advice do I have?

We use quite a few different products on Azure. For example, we also use Azure Backup and Stack. A small team at our organization is using the software. We use the solution daily. I don't really have any advice to give to others. I would just say that it's pretty straightforward and it works well… more»
