A great cloud-based solution but shifting between environments can be tricky

Pros and Cons

  • "The speed is great and the architecture is excellent."
  • "Microsoft should develop an interface to make it easier to shift from on-premise to the cloud."

What is our primary use case?

There are around 10 people using this solution within our organization and we have plans to increase the usage. 

What is most valuable?

Microsoft Azure uses the Massively Parallel Processing concept for data warehousing. The speed is great and the architecture is excellent. 

What needs improvement?

Microsoft should develop an interface to make it easier to shift from on-premise to the cloud.

There needs to be a lift and shift tool to move on-premise, IMS high-volume data to synopsis sequence data on the cloud.

I have been using this solution for two years.

The stability is okay, but it could be improved. I believe Microsoft is working on fixing this at the moment.

How are customer service and technical support?

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

We used to use an AWF product, but Microsoft Azure is a better cloud-based solution compared to AWF.

Our license is very expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to other enterprises.

On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of seven.
