Microsoft Azure Other Advice

Roberto Rubio
Country Manager at Orion Consultores C.A
I would rate this solution a nine because they are always incorporating new alerts and new features. I wouldn't give it a ten because it's sometimes not easy to use and the price is not a fair price for the solution. I don't know why customers think that Amazon is the best. I think that the customer thinks that the best option for cloud is an Amazon service and the second one is Microsoft. My advice to someone considering this or a similar solution is to be careful with Amazon because the customers think that they are always on the list. View full review »

We found it difficult to train our regular Windows admins to dive into Azure things, so it's important to get the right people or the project is doomed. There are too many people who don't really want to get to grips with the cloud. I would also suggest not starting from a fully regulated basis. We have our deployment fully integrated with Azure Active Directory, which can be quite a hindrance when it comes to just playing around with things. It's essential to give people developer accounts where they can just play around, break things, work through them, like a little lab. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10. View full review »

There are multiple players in the market and this seems to be a good solution. It really depends on the use case and on the customer. I would personally choose AWS over Azure because that's where my experience is and I'm more familiar with AWS. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10. View full review »

If you are a C#, .NET or SQL server person, do not even think about using AWS, use Azure instead. If you are more of a Linux/PHP/Java type of person, you may consider AWS as it works much better from the command line and much more like a Linux or Java environment. View full review »

My advice for anybody who is considering this product is that it can be a good start for SME, up to MNC who needs to see their full environment, rather than just a particular system or area. Overall, this is a good solution but there is room for improvement. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. View full review »

My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to do a proof of concept first. This is what I suggest to all of our customers, especially before migrating to the cloud. It will ensure that it meets the requirements. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten. View full review »

For the most part, Microsoft Azure works well. They are constantly upgrading their services. That said, I don't think that it's perfect. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. View full review »

If you look at it from the cloud product perspective, AWS is first. There is no doubt about it, and Azure is in the second position, and Google is the third. Serverless is something that Microsoft needs to focus on, it is not so mature. That would be a game-changer. I would rate it a seven out of ten. Not a ten because they need to improve in terms of maturity, flexibility, and user experience. View full review »

We don't have customer reviews of some of those applications. They should provide a lot of understanding. If reviewing and rating also becomes one of the alternatives, I think that will be a big win for them. They are loaded with functionalities. I would rate Azure a seven out of ten. They are very open with the options, but customers are not there with the road map. There are too many options. That confusion is a con of the solution. View full review »
