Pros: It integrates very well with .net applications, Microsoft services work very fast, it is easy to activate the services I need. I can also access them in a very short time, after I request them.

Cons: It is expensive with respect to similar services. The dashboard setting should be more friendly. The .log in detail of the applications or services, in case of failure.

Overall: The application of the company is developed in .net and Azure easily adapts to the changes and requirements that we have. The Azure cloud has worked very well for us, it has always been online and we have not perceived the possible drops or failures that they have had as a platform.

Pros: Very easy to commission servers and get them up and running in mater of seconds. Ton of useful features and flexible with third part solutions.

Cons: Settings up network and ports for inbound and outbound traffic was more complicated than we would expected. It can get pricy if you want to take a full advantage of some options.

Overall: Flexible solution. Gives you a chance to address users/business expectations in a short period of time.

Pros: I love the ease with which the procurement of servers happen on Azure. The dashboard to show usage and traffic patterns is also very useful and intuitive

Cons: Configurating firewall ports to allow traffic from a server outside into and outside of Azure took a lot of time. I wish that there was an easier way to do it.

Pros: Easy to spin up virtual machines for testing at very low cost when required. Ability to clone machines and make templates.

Cons: Machines can sometimes be very slow unless you spend more money. Sometimes instances are magically rebooted - although I suspect this is due to internal essential management - patching / removing failed hosts.

Pros: Many different features within the Azure platform. From Networking, Server platforms, Databases etc. If you need to host a specific service in the cloud, chances are Azure can handle it.

Cons: If you're not familiar with the platform, it can be a bit difficult to configure for a first time user. There is so much granularity and so many different solutions to the point where it can be overwhelming having to worry about if you're configuring everything correctly. Training or certification is definitely recommended to fully utilize the platform correctly.

Pros: Obviously, Microsoft can go right after google and AWS and undercut the Microsoft server licensing model since they can give them away. That has ensured a very low cost point. That said, that is really the only draw. If you are on a linux platform, I'd probably take AWS or google. Spinning up a VM (even pre-configured for you) was as simple as a couple clicks. Performance was as expected. The only issue I had was support.

Cons: Support could benefit from non off shored staff. It was difficult to understand them, and I don't like this trend.

Overall: cheap cheap licensing and bandwidth.

Pros: The tool offers a number of different predictive modeling methods that can be applied to your data set. The format looks like well-known excel.

Cons: All the complex predictive methods offered by Azure require some background statistical knowledge. Users should do some learning before using predictive algorithms.

Pros: The gives us the option to customize our security features which is great due to the high level of security needed to ensure HIPAA compliance.

Cons: The only con I can think of is it's a little pricey. Functionality-wise, I can't come up with any negatives or issues we've run into.

Overall: We need to ensure our information is secure to to HIPAA regulations and this product does a great job encrypting and/or keeping communications secure.

Pros: It's quite easy to mount a virtual machine with a lot of preset available. We can start testing in a new Windows environement (or other) very efficiently.

Many advanced options are available, but if we need just a quick test, we can have the virtual machine running with the defaults.

Cons: A bit complicated to understand the cost of the machine. Every part is separated and it takes some time to understand the links between items.

Pros: Easy to use cloud features. A lot of help and guidelines available.
Great features on cloud based services offering. They have almost all the standard cloud services offered by others.
Wide userbase. Great community those use Azure cloud platform and knowledge base is enriching all the time.

Cons: Pricing is expensive than AWS services. For the same or similar services offerings AWS offers cheaper price specially for heavy usages. Windows machines are expensive. No or little provisioning of free tiers for newbies and trial of services available.

Pros: There are a ton of amazing points about Azure. The ease of which you can spool up new websites, databases, or even entire virtual machines is incredible. You can do in minutes what would take you hours to do on site. Setting up communication between resources is also quite easy.

Inside each installed item (website, VM, SQL Server, etc.), there will be options that you can configure. These options make it very easy to quickly configure your resources in a way that is best. Not sure what you should do for setup? No problem. There are usually only a few pages of options, so it is easy enough to click through each page and read them (and their associated help). That allows for a much better experience for even novice Azure users.

Cons: I like Azure a lot, but there are definitely some big areas for improvement. The biggest, I think, is a very clear and transparent pricing system. It is very difficult to figure out what a certain addition will do to impact your monthly pricing. You have to guess a bit at what you think will happen and where you think you are at overall to figure out if you can afford to add another resource. That's not the way it should be.

The interface leave a lot to be desired as well. They just updated it, but it actually added to the confusion. There are so many boxes and flyouts to navigate, it gets hard to figure out what resources you are already using. I would like to see a very clear "this is what you have" system, especially when new resources can use the existing resources. For example, you can set up a VM to host your websites. Cool. However, that VM is a special one and it is hard to find to configure. Also, it is hard to figure out if it would be ok to add another website to it or not (is it pegged out or is there some wiggle room to add more load?).

Like I said, I like Azure. There is just room to make it better.

Pros: I love the blue/green feature of doing a release of our website. Having staging built into the product is a great feature.

Cons: It could be easier to use and the price is a bit high for small to mid-sized businesses. It would be great to have a value plan for developers and small businesses.

Overall: Quick deployment of our website and easy release cycle for ongoing maintenance.

Pros: Azure has enough features to handle most cloud related functionality that is needed. Price is pretty good compared to other cloud providers. For Microsoft developers, a great choice.

Cons: Usability could be better. The ability to pin things to the dashboard is nice but it can be hard to find particular options or features. Also, the naming of different services seems to change on a yearly basis so hard to keep up.

Overall: Able to host software in the cloud without a need to run physical servers.

Pros: Ease of use, reasonably priced, works from anywhere. Allows us the ability to store our files in the cloud and cuts down on costs required for physical servers. Allows us to print to local printers and also access drives on laptops and PCs. Very convenient.

Cons: Sometimes hard to understand the monthly billed usage. A new virtual server with little activity was almost the same cost as the virtual server we use everyday and it's hard to understand why. However, it's not like we're talking thousands of dollars so it's not a huge issue.

Overall: Remote access from anywhere.

Everything you could want from a cloud service provider; necessarily complex.

Pros: I've used Azure in both a professional setting, as a software engineer, and as a volunteer for a non-profit. I like how feature-rich Azure is; anything you'd come to expect from a cloud service provide, they have it and more. I also like that they've started offering grant for non-profits, so they're giving back to organizations trying to make our communities better. Their marketplace and one-click installs are a quick and easy way to get started with your cloud projects, no matter your skill level.

Cons: Azure is very feature-rich, but that make it pretty complicated. It's definitely not made for the faint of heart or those without a technical background. It's really easy to get yourself in a bad state, then you'll have a hard time recovering. Their paid customer support is a bit frustrating, considering that their costs are on the high end for cloud service providers. Their UI is something a bit unusual; it's not bad, it's actually kind of nice, but it can take a bit of getting used to.

Pros: Simplified data storage is the best thing and it provides a very good working UI. It also has a flexible system for every business need.

Cons: I don,t like it charging too much but they deserve appreciation for what they made.

Overall: The best part of azure is that we never find it hard to use. It has so many features under a single banner. For windows lover it is a boon. It has container features and it is easy to manipulate in accordance with your needs. You can not find a similar platform as a service for windows, also it can be used for linux platform too. We do have clients with similar needs and we give them the much needed for their requirements Microsoft Azure. Cheers!! to server capability enhancements and the flexibility provided. No one can beat it,s simplified data storage feature.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just buy this if you want to make your business stand out, it is one of the best in market.

Comments: The search api was discontinued and replaced by a new search api. Although the new search api is more accessible, they didn't implement backwards capability. As a result, the web app that I was working on last year no longer works. At some point, I will go through the migration process, but I feel that this discontinuation should have allowed for a few years of backwards compatibility.

There were no notifications; we found out about the outage the hard way - subscription shutdown. Despite being truly under the free quota, I just switched to pay-as-you-go billing and ate the cost.

Comments: Azure is a great cloud platform. I've used it through BizSpark, so I get free credits each month. That is nice because a simple setup can cost over $100/month. For the speed you get at that price point, I'd probably look elsewhere if I were paying fully out of pocket. If you want something online (SQL, web server, Virtual Machine, etc.), you can get it in Azure. It just might cost more than you were expecting to pay.

Pros: If you want to keep your data safe in the cloud, there isn't a better solution available on the market right now.

Cons: Sometimes it can be hard to troubleshoot synchronization problems.

Overall: Microsoft Azure was very fast and easy to implement. Migrating a farm of 1000+ users was smooth without any headaches. Very good at keeping AD in sync with cloud services.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Comments: I'm new on using azure, but for now the experience is great. In addition to deploying my website using ASP. .NET and SQL azure, I also put together a solution for recommendations inside my web site using the Azure cognitive services platform, and it just took about an hour. Excellent!

Comments: My experience with Microsoft Azure was smooth and very educational.
I am rendered to the simplicity and speed I can create a test or production infrastructure within Microsoft Azure. Everything is in one place, with embedded resource monitoring and pricing calculator that provide us the tools needed to accurately get an insight of everything.

Definitely an excellent platform for the beginning of the 21th century.

Pros: Reasonable cost, convenient, reduces overhead costs.

Cons: Support is often not as useful as we'd like given that this is Microsoft after all.

Overall: We use MSFT Azure to store all our corporate files since we no longer have a physical office and our own servers. This allows us to reduce costs by not having to have an IT staff and not having to maintain hardware such as servers, firewalls, routers, etc. Through remote desktop, our files are accessible from anywhere so we can be wherever we need to be yet still have access to what we need.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's great if you don't want to employ an IT staff or have to deal with hardware to store your corporate files.
