If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Microsoft Azure Object Storage, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I am satisfied with the features that Azure Object Storage has. In general, this is a product that I recommend but at the end of the day, the suitability depends on the use case and the requirements. If it is something that meets their needs then it will be very beneficial. As we have worked with this product, we have not come across any problems that could not be resolved. That said, there is always room for improvement. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
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.
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 need the data to be easily accessible daily, they need to go for a Hot Tier. If they feel like they would be better off archiving, they need to look for a Cold Tier. The difference between the two is huge. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
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 something that you will have to be aware and cautious of. I would recommend this solution. I would rate it an eight out of ten.
