Pros: The number of options that are available from IaaS to PaaS. It is easy and cheap to get started but will scale to global demand.

Cons: In some cases the easy way to get started can lead to a situation where teams need to rebuild for scale / security later. Instead of being guided to do things right, in some cases the default way is quick and dirty and the team doesn't know until problems arise.

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: 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

Pros: 1> The Windows VMs are good.
2>Azure SQL is one of the best-managed SQL server Service out in the market.
3> Pricing is good for few products like VM's
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.

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

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.

Pros: Your backups are kept off-site, so even disaster in your datacenter area will not affect your backup storage and you will be able to restore when it will be needed.

Cons: If you are migrating to on-premise location it will consume outgoing traffic from Azure, and for migration to Azure you`d better use Site Recovery instead of Backup.

Overall: Azure Backup allows you to have modern approach for backing up your on-premise infrastructure.

Since we have only been using Azure for a couple months I am only able to provide this little bit of info. I for see us using Azure for everything soon.

Cons: Price is high for sure, I think that would be the only con my current company would have since they are fronting the bill. I personally do not have any cons at this time since I have only been using them for a couple of months.

Pros: There was a nice communal location to get all our the users code up in the cloud and then eventually have the lead installer/coder push forward the designs and have a cohesive thought put together. The thing I liked about Azure was the ability to see in real time what was being uploaded and modified to not step on overs toes. Though our business is quite small it worked great. I am unsure how big business would handle such a design implementation but in thoery it should work the same way.

Cons: I really don't have any Cons I can think of, not meaning that none exist. My role in the Azure development was strictly uploading and downloading from it therefore, it was easy to use. I'm sure that the installer/lead coder would have some pitfalls they have come across.

They will give you a lot of free resources but you are mostly on your own to determine how to use them. They also seem to drive you towards importing your badly designed processes from on-prem to the cloud, largely negating the main benefits of a cloud first environment.

Pros: Full library of machine learning algorithms provided. Multiple programming language support. No need to worry about hardware provision.

Cons: Documentation could be better for people new to machine learning. It may just be my background, but I tended to end up not using drag and drop features etc, and just writing python scripts.

Overall: Simple machine learning platform. Good libraries and no need to worry about hardware.

Pros: In this day and age people have extremely valuable information they can't afford to lose on their devices and Azure provides the sense of security one needs. It's in a remote cloud,so that is one extra step towards reliability .

Cons: The pricing is in a pay as you go principle and can become substantial if you need a lot of data stored. There is also a learning curve ,before you can use the program's full capabilities .

Overall: Knowing that something getting deleted or lost on my PC isn't fatal .

Pros: The ui is slick, and things just work out of the box. Sort of unexpected in the cloud world, but it's a pleasure to use.

Cons: For my uses, I would need full feature parody to switch over from AWS completely. Still, it's easier to use a multi cloud setup these days.

Pros: It's drag and drop functionality is great and the visuals are very helpful for finding anomalies in your data.

Cons: The tool isn't very intuitive if you are not a data scientist. It would be great if there were longer descriptions on each of the types of algorithms

Overall: Not a lot of benefit as we didn't get accurate results from our predictive model.

Pros: THE PRICE - it's literally such good value. You can host SQL databases for literally a few pence a month. It's reliable and quick too, and the Azure portal is comprehensive and very stylish.

Cons: I have to admit setting up something on Azure, access controls etc get some getting used to and could be a little more user-friendly.

Azure is a platform for business, for existing and custom apps. From one to many users!

Pros: The fact that the hardware is fully maintained by outside persons, and is easy to access from anywhere, not a lame SaaS environment. I especially like the ability to custom develop apps in the Azure toolset. I used it currently for Dynamics NAV 365.

Cons: Dynamics NAV 365 is hosted with the intent of web-only rather than utilizing the standard development environment.

Overall: Fully remote and virtualized environment for hosting Dynamics NAV 365

Pros: Azure Microsoft provides the opportunity to increase or decrease the number of servers used, allowing you to configure your own server in accordance with the needs of the business. Backup is performed by Microsoft itself.

Cons: For effective use of Azure, Microsoft needs to study its functionality well, so it may take quite a while to get acquainted.

An Awesome Solution!
