Microsoft Azure Object Storage Room for Improvement
Systems Technician at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
There are a lot of points for improvement at the moment.
For example, in the case of this product, we are not able to do a backup of what we call NAS, network-attached storage appliances, directly to the cloud. We can do to all the repositories in our premises on the storage that we have here, however, it's not possible to entirely upload this to the cloud. To me, this is the major problem of this solution, at the moment.
There are other problems that I imagine other solutions can have the problems too, for example, there are some errors if the network is unstable and there are network failures sometimes, and it's not easy to recover data.
The administration of the solution is not as easy as we would like it to be.View full review »
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 storage is difficult. There's no easy way to do it. In the past, we've been required to download the data and then upload it to cold storage. It's an annoying process. If the solution could fix this it would be much better.

The cost should be reduced to make it more competitive. There are other vendors that provide good solutions, so if Microsoft were more competitive in terms of pricing then it would be one reason for us to continue with them.
I would like to have out-of-the-box connectors to make integration with other products easier.View full review »

They could improve AI and ML-based modules. They should add more modules based on artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Pricing is a little bit tricky with Microsoft Azure. They do provide the estimates, but it is not easy to guess the exact amount that we will be billed after a month or two because it is based on usage. This is a little confusing.View full review »
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 the Middle East and these areas, there is less support.View full review »

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 to find and delete specific files.View full review »
