Pros: The framework is easy to spin up new instances for tests or clients. Easily scale our application when the needs require it. Pricing is competitive. With a Visual Studio subscription you get a free 250$ credit each month which goes a long way.

Cons: As it is with large companies, you get a tonne of features and no support. Luckily much of the community is there to help, but that doesn't always help with your specific issues.
Some of the configuration items are hard to find.

Overall: Easy development without worrying about the hardware.

Pros: it helps us to respond quickly to changes in the needs of the company, by allowing us to expand or reduce IT resources based on their use, since Azure

Cons: This tool seems very positive because it allows our applications to have more or less allocated resources based on actual use. It offers flexible, secure, unlimited and economical file storage. We can obtain IT resources immediately and without the need to invest in assets

Overall: Among the benefits offered by Microsoft Azure is that of cost reduction: Unlike investing in acquiring and maintaining the hardware in your company, the cloud option offers you to avoid the purchase and significant savings in energy consumption, support and maintenance. Flexibility: The cloud allows you to quickly obtain more or less resources / server power according to the need at each moment, without investments in assets. Targeting: Infrastructure as a service allows you to free up time and resources up to that point destined to maintain your own infrastructure, to direct them to tasks of greater value for your business among others.

Pros: I use Azure for machine learning analysis and it is a very useful tool to help you do neural networks analysis and automate the process to be hassle-free. Also the result can be easily combined with other softwares like Stata, R.

Pros: This is the cloud based program for Data storage it also takes care of keeping your device up to date such as hardware, software, and maintenance upgrades. It can be accessed with any device you choose to use, including your cell phone. It lets me give different levels of access to fellow employees so I know who is doing and looking at what.

Cons: Of course with all cloud based programs you can not access it unless you have a internet connection . If you need to recover minimal amounts of data it gets done pretty fast the bigger the amount of data the longer it will take to back up. For example a full data recovery could take a very long time. I used it one time to backup my pc it took forever.

Overall: This is a good cloud base back up program but in addition it also automatically keeps your device software and hardware updated as well. Its a all around good program. Recommend to everyone unless you like One Drive.

Pros: I like Windows Azure because it uses a specialized operating system, located on the Microsoft data servers that are responsible for managing stored resources and processing safely.

It offers the possibility to protect important information with an automatic backup within a storage service. Backup copies are registered before data transmission. These backups are overprotected, which reduces the possibility of loss and theft of information.

is a storage tool that is responsible for providing hosting of confidential information to organizations in data type Table n0SQL, blobs, blobs for streaming, message queues, or NTFS drives for read operations or desktop to disk.

I like that microsoft does not allow for example that no government has access to the stored data.

Cons: Azure offers a quality service but cost that requires the investment of significant sums of money to use your service.

Although it is a recognized company every day the hackers are updated situation that leaves the possibility that at the moment that the information of the company must travel different nodes to reach their destination is a source of insecurity. therefore, it is advisable to review the technological capacity of any cloud service provider to ensure that they are updated.

Overall: The hiring of a cloud service significantly reduced equipment maintenance expenses, updating of computer equipment and hiring of technical personnel.

Is a tool for immediate use only requires configuration, it is easier to work with clouds than with server rooms.

The cloud has the possibility of using it in any space of the territory allowing to obtain the required information in an easy way.

In the work it has allowed to reduce cost, to make data analysis with greater facilitation and the development of programs for the growth of the company.

Pros: It is really easy to setup and use the storage on azure. You can have it up and running with files on their in minutes.

Cons: The security model is all wrong especially for file stores. We really want the equivalent NTFS permissions but all you can use is tokens. No fine grained security. You can get round this by adding a file server in front of the storage but it doeas feel like cheating and adds more costs

4> The MS Azure Support team is very prompt in replying to queries.

Cons: 1>Very Confusing User Interface
2>Datawarehouse is ridiculously expensive and is not at all performant if you compare it with AWS & GCPs flagship data warehousing solution.
2>Setting up Pay as you go was a pain.
3>They Payment cant be done at will but will be auto deducted.

Overall: If your team is already using Microsoft technologies then look no further than Azure. But Datawarehousing solutions can be ridicouly expensive and no where as performant as AWS & GCP's Redshift or Big Query.

Pros: I declare myself a fan of Microsoft, they are very attached to all the tools they take out and this is not off the list. It is very easy to use and allows you to save the information in another site for better backup, it is what I like the most because if there is a failure the information is completely supported. Really very good experience

Cons: Until now as I said, I love the applications of Microsoft and I do not find error to this, it works perfect, I am very happy with your work

Pros: -I love that there is no limit of an amount of data transfer.
-Flexibility in restoring data make more convenient for me.
-Due to data encryption, it also ensures the vulnerability which increases the speed of transfer rate.

Cons: -Azure's offline Import/Export service come with additional data charges. For me, it's not worth to pay more for that.

Pros: Azure has more complete regulatory compliance coverage, inserts security, privacy and compliance into its development methodology and has been recognized as the most reliable cloud, it also provides the best intellectual property protection, allowing it to focus on the innovation.

Cons: I do not have any negative experience with the use of this software, the truth is that it is a fairly complete and easy to use program. No further comments.

Overall: Since the technology can fail, Windows offers with the Azure a way to protect the important information with an automatic backup within a storage service. These backups are out of site, far from your data center, which reduces the need to secure and protect backup media in place. Totally beneficial for your daily use.

Pros: The variety of configurations that can be created on virtual machines, as well as the ease of being able to upload the machine to another with better specifications when required. If the virtual machine is not in use it can be turned off which avoids incurring the expenses for having the machine turned on and idle.
Microsoft azure is one of the most complete services, according to the need it requires, it can be quickly apportioned from virtual machines, machines for big data, publication of web services, publication of web pages, databases, backup, etc.

Cons: Virtual machines, such as linux type, can be used to create a script in a more automatic way, but to do so it requires documentation, because it requires knowing the appropriate commands for it.

Overall: Rapid provision of virtual machines, which do not need to perform any type of hardware upgrade, the ability to turn them off when they are not used for any reason allows to reduce costs.
