We performed a comparison between Jenkins and Microsoft Azure based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about GitLab, Jenkins, Amazon and others in Build Automation.
"Jenkins's open-based framework is very valuable."
"Very easy to understand for newcomers."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is its integration between different tools."
"The solution is scalable and has a large number of plugins that can help you scale it to your needs."
"I like that you can find a wide range of plugins for Jenkins."
"When we have manual tasks, we have to depend on multiple technical teams. With Jenkins, we can bring all the technologies together by the click of a button. We can see results without having to depend on different teams. Jenkins makes life easy for the database and DevOps teams."
"The most valuable feature of Jenkins is its open source."
"It can scale easily."
"Microsoft Azure is scalable."
"The automated connectors to some of our critical enterprise systems are an important feature. These are very large, critical, global HCM systems."
"I use a virtual machine for remote desktop and Microsoft Azure is user-friendly."
"The pricing is quite good, and it is designed as pay-per-use."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is its ease of use."
"Easy to deploy services"
"Installation is easy as it's cloud-based. Performance is good. It's stable and scalable."
"The application services are the most valuable in Microsoft Azure. I'm not using them directly but I am using the function and the web applications. I don't need to pay a lot for the maintenance. I do not need to have a DevOps employee."
"The product should provide more visualization as to how many pipelines are performing and how many builds are happening. It should also integrate with Kubernetes and OpenShift."
"I would like them to provide space for people to have a central node that stores all the logs of workspace information in a distributed fashion to facilitate backup and restoration. Currently, everything is stored on one node, so you need to set up distributed storage or an endpoint that you can use for backing up your information."
"They need to improve their documentation."
"The solution's UI can use a facelift and the logs can use more detailed information."
"Jenkins could improve by adding the ability to edit test automation and make time planning better because it is difficult. It should be easier to do."
"Jenkins is not an easy solution to use and the configuration is not simple. They can improve the solution by adding a graphical interface that is more user-friendly."
"The onboarding of Jenkins should be smoother, and it should have more pipelines available as it's deployed on many different servers."
"Jenkins could simplify the user interface a little bit because it sometimes creates too many features cramped in the UI."
"The management portal can be confusing sometimes. We have difficulty navigating the menus because the terminology is unclear, especially when referring to the content or actionable items."
"Microsoft Azure is so complicated inside. If you should do something internally, if you have to configure something, the opinion about Azure is that it is a little complicated inside. That's why the end users and clients are looking for help and why we help them configure and do anything inside of Azure. That is why we offer other tools to optimize the Azure environment."
"The dashboard of Microsoft Azure could be better."
"Customer services and support should be improved. If a user faces challenges in accessing Microsoft Azure, the support team takes time—it could be 24 to 48 hours—to resolve them. We need solutions in four to five hours. And there are business-critical issues where we need an immediate resolution."
"An issue I encountered was around the integration of Identity. I lost some important information and I would like to see improvements with this."
"Their backup strategy is a little complex which racks up the VM to other sole storage areas. This should be improved."
"Microsoft Azure could improve by being more secure."
"The integration pipeline could be a bit more broad in terms of applications."
Jenkins is an award-winning application that monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron.
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform, where developers can create, deploy, and maintain their apps. This cloud application platform allows developers to concentrate on the actual applications, while it takes care of all the elements behind the apps.
Windows Azure works across multiple frameworks and languages. It is fully scalable, localized in that it is hosted globally in many datacenters, and has widespread capabilities with elements of application development, deployment, and management.
Azure is comprised of several different service modules, including Infrastructure; Web; Mobile; Dev & Test; Big Data; Media;Storage, Backup & Recovery; and Identity & Access Management.

"It is a flexible solution that is straightforward to use," says the principal consultant at a computer software company.
“You can build an environment in minutes. It's very good in terms of being an infrastructure as a service, and I found that really fascinating,” says an information technology consultant at a computer software company.
"I think Azure's level of automation to achieve efficiency or agility is valuable. I also like the change capability cadence, the showback capabilities, and understanding what our costs are," says an enterprise architect at an energy/utilities company.
Marco C., Ing. at Wolters Kluwer, says "The valuable features of Microsoft Azure are that it is cloud-based and has good storage. The storage is completely managed by Azure. We do not need to do any patching of security because it is handled by Azure which is a benefit. The solution is fully compatible with the Microsoft technology stack and is very scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is it has everything together in one place. It is one large tool with lots of small tools that are updated often," says the owner of a media company.
