Experience was excellent in both services and product features.
go with Microsoft first in Hyper-V and 2012 R2 features.
2012 R2 features and the increase in command line the product has offered. Hyper-V is working as proclaim.
Microsoft should increase its library of core roles and features and adapt to other applications

The services are rich in nature with many capabilities
Please make sure to comb through all the capabilities before making commitment
Dashboard and reliability
Confusing description to decide on the capability
Have a big picture of the feature breakdown. There are just too many areas to decide on the service.
Should have visited this earlier.

First level support has been worthless When we get field engineers involved (difficult to got to) we were able to remedy issues The products have perfoemed well overall, especially the HA features
Bring industry experts in during the analysis and design phase.
The reliability of SQL Server HA features has saved our data more than once during hardware and networking failures.
First level support.
Provide a phone number that woiuld skip first-level-support for technally advanced customers. When a problem is occurring within a hig-availability cluster, it does not help to ask the customer if the machine is plugged in and turned on.
Because we were "trail blazing" within the newer SQL Server 2014, as it was released in 2014, there is little that we would have been able to change. All-in-all, we made the right choices.

The products themselves are very good. However, Microsoft need to think more about the end to end service irresepective that there may be multiple 3rd parties and/or systems involved in the delivery of the services.
Use one of their top partners who can demonstrate that they have delivered the end to end cloud service that you are looking to implement.
The flexibility, the user experience and the cost.
Be realistic about the risks and the fact that they are also on a voyage of discovery as well as their clients.
Not make the assumption that Microsoft understand how their cloud products relate to each other and also that their partners, whom they have relied on to supplement their capabilitiy, are not as up to speed as they should be with their new cloud products.
The TAM did not provide timely information about Azure Site Recovery global outage whilst we were doing our migration onto Azure from our on-premise systems.

We have been very pleased with what Azure IaaS environments to this point. Our main use has been for Test and Development environments.
Purchase an expressroute connection if you have a large number of user. The experience will be much better.
Speed of build process for new servers, networks, etc.
Needs better guide on server sizes to help customers determine what size server to build.
Provide a better understanding of the on premise integration needed to use an Azure datacenter with little issue.
We would spend more time integrating the environment with our on premise systems before the start of development projects. Most of the road blocks that we have hit were due to missing connectivity or access to on premise systems.

The product works great - we moved our disaster recovery site to Azure IAAS. We encountered some obstables but Microsoft was there every step of the way to help over come them
Gain success with quick wins and build upon that
The speed to market/agility that we have to deliver new and scalable services
continues to need to mature
Continue to do even more rigorous testing for new products
Take more time to execute the cutover to Disaster Recovery - We needed to get out of our facility which caused too agressive of a time line than desired
great and timely support

Overall experience was very good, but due to the nature of Azure IaaS being different from on-premise server configuation, there was a steep learning curve.
Hire a competent 3rd part to help.
Complexity of Iaas.
Microsoft was very helpful.
Assess security requirements earlier. Azure Network Security Groups did not provide enough separation of duties or visibility for our organization.
A bumpy road, but very satisfied in the end.

Struggle for a large corporation to adapt to a cloud platform that has less regulation.
Try to use the existing architecture of Azure rather than using existing standards and trying to adapt the technology.
