Architect Cloud at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

What is most valuable?

The metadata that the solution provides is quite valuable for us. If we need to analyze the latest data from a particular department or particular user, we can simply query through the metadata we store in Azure Object Storage and simply fetch those records which are maybe one day or one month old… more»

What needs improvement?

We've seen some performance issues with Azure Table storage. It's quite slow. The performance surrounding it should be improved to speed things up a bit. Moving data from cold storage to the hot storage, or, to put it another way, moving data back and forth between regular storage and archival… more»

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

We didn't previously use another solution before implementing Object Storage. Previously we had everything in-house. Now everything is on the public cloud.

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure which version of the solution we are currently using. In terms of if other organizations should use the solution, I'd say that the question is, do they understand what they prefer. They need to understand the data they want to store and if they will need regular access to it. If they… more»

Jan 30 2020

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the cost value, which is very important for long term retention. We can keep the backups for a longer duration. It's a simple solution.

What needs improvement?

They could provide multiple tools to provide you with cost calculations, giving you a better picture or providing you with better details of the cost calculations over the years.

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

For the cloud, you get charges every day if you are going to download anything, besides the cost for storage those charges are always there.

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

Previously quite a few years back, there were several solutions available. We used a few solutions on a trial basis only, but they were slow.

What other advice do I have?

It's not just the storage that is being affected, they have to know if they want to move the data back, and the data is vast and large, those costs will have to be taken care of also. That is… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options, we went with Microsoft straight away.

Solutions Architect at a software R&D company with 11-50 employees
Mar 08 2020

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the API because it is very flexible. If you need extra options such as authentication or authorization, then you just use the features that are available as part of Azure.

What needs improvement?

Technical support should be faster at resolving issues for tickets that we create.

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this solution depends on your use cases and your requirements. Sometimes you will need block storage, rather than object storage. You need to know what technology is applicable and practical for your use cases. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Jan 26 2020

What is most valuable?

Most of the brands are certified coupled with partners, such as AWS and Oracle. With Microsoft Azure Object Storage, they are an open market.

What needs improvement?

Support and cost are areas that can be improved. The cost of support is always expensive. They can be more competitive in their pricing and the data center doesn't compare to other solutions such as Google. Microsoft is still growing. In… more»

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

We have a separate package and pay extra for additional technical support.

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

We are using Oracle as well.

What other advice do I have?

You can reduce operational costs and the cost of resources. It is easy to maintain, and I would recommend this product. I would rate this solution a nine out ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the development and redundancy. This solution is easy to use, and performance-wise it is better than others.

What needs improvement?

Object re-use should be improved in order to get better performance and reduce the cost. We have experienced performance issues on the website. The interface on the homepage can be improved. When we are uploading items into storage, we only get information from a high level. This makes it difficult… more»

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

The cost is based on the amount of traffic and we paid approximately 18 lakh Rupees ($25,000 USD) last year.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend using this tool as it is useful and very easy to implement. Any develop can help to reduce their costs. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
