Microsoft Azure Initial Setup

Rodrigo Ramele
Mobile Lead Engineer at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
The initial setup is very straightforward. You can very easily have an application up-and-running almost out-of-the-box. The learning curve is steeper once you need to start building more services or when you need to take care of performance issues. View full review »

The key here is design. You need to design and orchestrate how you want your VMs (geo-redundant, in an availability set, size of VMs, etc.). It is the key to understanding the costs of each set of VMs available to you in terms of size and computing resources. Also, understand what type of storage will be required for you to deploy your virtual infrastructure SSD storage and larger disks. Plan to use this (Standard, Basic, or Premium) and it needs to be taken into consideration depending of what you want to use Azure for. View full review »

Network Manager / Senior Network Engineer at Warnock, Tanner & Associates
Huge learning curve for me. I found just diving in was incredibly difficult. Much lab time required to understand how things work together. Once you get going however it all makes sense. I also find the GUI to be more intuitive then AWS and feels better. They are constantly changing the GUI while they continue migrating the ASM model to the ARM model. Since this is a living platform it can change from one day to the next adding features. View full review »

Setting up was quite simple, before jumping in though make sure you watch some of the video's on the MVA site about virtual networking and so forth, the Azure user interface makes deploying these resources relatively straight-forward. View full review »

The setup was complex. There is a lot of training that needs to occur with both development teams and infrastructure teams. It is a different approach. In some ways, it is more structured. View full review »

Lead Engineer Solutions at a media company with 51-200 employees
Everything you do for the first time can be complex. Setting up a VM in Azure is straightforward, but setting up a Disaster Recovery plan or moving a complete infrastructure to Azure can be complex. Most of the complexity has to do with initial lack of experience. Diving into the material, study and hard work together with colleagues helps a lot. An experienced System Administrator with years of on-premise experience will be able to make the move to Azure. View full review »

Complex in the beginning, because the company I was migrating had some peculiarities. The latter move was totally stable as we did a cutoff migration and no garbage was imported. Some downtime was expected, but this was minimal. View full review »
