Azure has been awesome. Our application is 100% running on Azure. And we are doing it without VMs. It is 100% PaaS via Azure Websites. We leverage PaaS services in the gallery. And the entire setup has allowed us to do 5+ releases a day upon every developer commit. Website slots are awesome for DevOps flows. Our application is not .Net it is PHP. I do think we would get some benefit having a .Net application. But it has not stopped us from anything. We are even able to use the connection string bucket to switch between prod and testing databases automatically during the release process. Just some simple calls to the Azure SDK.

The reason we decided to use Azure over Amazon is our company prizes UX. And we could do something in Azure in one third the time it would take use in Amazon. And knowing what is going one does not take some weird brain math or purchasing special management and reporting tools.

Great integration with other Microsoft products, including Active Directory, Powershell, etc.

It was a huge mistake to use Azure!!

They recommended to use their Azure SQL Federations for YEARS and then they just disabled it!! We have to spend 8 months in order to rewrite our entire service.

And the only reason for shutdown was their BA department, who decided that they should better provide much more expensive PREMIUM SQL instead of cheap Azure Federations, even if both do the same.

Customers have to pay 15 times more for the same service as before!!!

VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

I am a big fan of Azure blob storage, every transfer is easy to it when using backup tools like Gs Richcopy 360 or Goodsync, I can do many operations like copy changes only or copying files timestamps, Awsome

It was the best choice to use Azure blob, it is the best way to contain our data safe without any worries about how it is saved. What everyone should worry about is the way to sync from windows or VM to the blob, Azcopy was my preferred one but it was not super friendly, depends on the command line, has quite a bit of parameters, and can copy and takes up your bandwidth because it has so much power, now we use Gs Richcopy 360, it is a GUI based, powerful, super friendly, safe and can control the connection while transferring to the Azure blob. So everything should be easy with Azure
