Microsoft Azure

Not quite mature, but making rapid advances.

Original implementation was a large learning curve. We found many things we take for granted in our private cloud (VMWare) did not exist in Azure. Once we learned the "workarounds", we're satisfied this will meet some of our needs. Microsoft needs to figure out how it wants to manage its infrastructure. having 2 different and often completely seperate management interfaces (ASM vs. ARM) is a HUGE problem and waste of time. You have to wade through too much information that doesn't apply to the newer systems.

Very scalable platform but needs to be carefully leveraged to make it cost effective/

Very scalable platform and provides good tools to manage it and make it scalable.

Inplementation was made easy going from on prem Hyper-V to Azure.

We were working with an application that had unique requirments for performance and stability. Azure provided us a platform that met those requirements.

Transition from physical servers to Azure cloud VMs was fantastic, smooth transition

Amazing technology and service

Microsoft Azure

Implementation was easy but the feature sets were not fully enabled

Implementation and build out was relatively easy. Had difficulty shutting down compute services completely. Billing problems emerged but vender was very willing to resolve the problem.

Microsoft Azure

Extremely reliable once set up but more complex networking requires a lot of overhead

Initial setup was easy and documentation was readily accessible for basic setup of virtual machines. Documentation for more complex setup with ExpressRoute is lacking and the process is complex.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft is clearly a strong player in the IAAS space

The technology works as advertised and has been reliable so far. I am curious to see how much elasticity we will really get as we scale up in production.

Microsoft Azure

functionality was lacking and buggy

average

Microsoft Azure

Azure is a great product and very stable, needs more robust support.

The infrastructure is very stable and accessible. However, given the recent adoption of the Azure technology support is not as easily accessible as it should be.

Azure SQL Data Warehouse - Continuous Innovation

Microsoft provided research grant dollars to help us develop our Azure SQL Data Warehouse in the cloud, which lead to a wonderful opportunity to connect with the bleeding edge technologies and introduce us to machine learning and AI potential that we never would have been able to step into without their support help and funding help. It was overall a wonderful parternship and provides us the capabilities to scale and stay on the bleeding edge of Microsoft Products and Services.
