Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Azure Stack.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The price of the OCR could be more competitive with Google.
When you compare AWS to Azure adding on all the security components you require to protect your application and data AWS is by far the cheaper alternative, like the cost of Defender and ATPm, MCAS, ADFS, etc.
I can't think of any area in which the solution is currently lacking. The solution could use more training materials to help users understand how to use the product effectively. Online training would also be a beneficial addition to the product.
As far as what we would like to see added, there are no burning issues right now. If we are looking for certain areas of improvement and we want to have specific features or functions, the flexibility of the environment allows us to easily add the functionality we want. There are always things that you have to find out for yourself. That creates complexity. Could Microsoft make the product easier to use? Probably by adding more scenarios, but Microsoft already has guidelines on when to use what feature. In the area of training, Microsoft already offers a lot of opportunities to further your skills with its products. These resources make it possible to get started quickly. The product is never going to do your learning for you in that way. I do not have any recommendations as to how the product should be enhanced as some of that is the user's responsibility and opportunity.
If they could integrate with Jira, this would be very useful for someone using Jira and TFS. This would make it easier to use.
I would like to see better support for containers. Containers and the IoT hub that exists in Azure Stack should be usable on-premises.
The reporting for the interim monitoring purpose could be improved. Right now Windows Admin Center is on the level with Victor Server 2019. But we need to work on the same tool, so we provide them some code features on the same tool. It's very useful for any organization and an administrator. Additionally, customers need to consider Disaster Recovery. Microsoft tech is only providing support to Azure. We would like to see it available for other services and solutions on the cloud, too, as well as a solution for Oracle backup.
Pricing is always a hot topic, so the pricing can always improve. And I'm not too sure if the Microsoft technical capabilities are very good because I don't make use of it. So, for me personally, pricing would probably be the only factor that needs to improve. I also think the monitoring tools needs some improvement.
The solution should be more open to allowing access to other tools and environments. Technical support also needs a lot of improvement.
