Additional work on connecting to Azure SQL via JDBC needs to be done

Overall things are really good. Better than before. Connectivity to MS Azure SQL could be better.

To date all has gone well

Microsoft Cloud - Cost effective scaleability

Overall experience has been positive. Microsoft support has been responsive and surprisingly helpful.

The base capabilities are there

Satisfied with the base IaaS offering, though the service is still maturing.

Azure way to go!

we were able to spin them up relatively very fast and meet our development deadlines while we don't have to worry too much about the servers if they are to be hosted on prem.

Microsoft Azure supports Travelport's cloud needs.

Microsoft worked with us giving us a lot of time on the cloud and a lot of consultant time. We are looking more at the PaaS side than the IaaS. Transition went well. There are some management capabilities that are not fully developed yet, especially for larger organizations that need management structures a certain way. We did not do lift and shift, systems were developed or re-developed for the cloud.

Azure lacks maturity in it's security models for PaaS preventing enterprise adoption

We have hit a number of issues with security in the environment. We currently use both AWS and Azure. We've determined that according to our security and risk standards, AWS is definitely more secure than Azure. We've needed to stop the adoption of PaaS services at our company if the application needs to hold PII (personally identifiable information). That is the vast majority of our applications. Another area that proved very challenging is networking. We've spent far more than anticipated to get what we needed.

Penguins in Azure - So Far, So Good!

Generally works as advertised. Portal is dog slow compared to others. API is good but very thick. Support for Linux was surprisingly deep.

Request Backups.

Contract review is very important. Request backups.

IaaS offering is good. Vendor's support is essential during the initial phase.

The vendor provided significant support to get us up & running. This was essential to overcome the initial hurdles and shorten the learnign time. Azure engineer assigned to us has taken time to understand our concerns and risks and offered several solutions to address these. We have hit several issues durign the solution rollout. Some service offerings seem to be not as stable as we'd like. While MS support has worked with us to resolve the issues, and the patches were issued reasonably quickly, we have experienced a week delay due to a problem with the specific Application Gateway configuration. The other shortcoming is vendor's outreach: the changes and patches are being rolled out without prior communications with the customer causing, at times, confusion and interruptions.
