Scalable and pretty easy to deploy

What is our primary use case?

We are using Azure to run cloud-based applications. 

What is most valuable?

Azure is good because it is a Microsoft product.

I just joined this company not too long ago, so I've been using Azure here for about two months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Azure is pretty stable, so far.

Straightforward navigation, fast and easy, and supports SaaS
