Pros
"The stability seems to be very reliable.""This is a very robust and flexible solution.""The solution is stable.""The most valuable features of Microsoft Azure Block Storage are flexibility and the possibility to trigger actions.""The ease of integration with services like CDN and computing makes it compelling and cost-effective.""The product offers hierarchical storage and we like the main space storage with business.""It can scale.""Azure Block Storage lets you customize code you can use on that endpoint.

Cons
"The security is poor, and the sharing model is confusing, conceptually. I'd prefer not to use it. I'd like a user-friendly web interface and a better security model.""The stability of Microsoft Azure Block Storage is good but could improve.""Azure Block Storage could use more capacity.""The solution could have better archival policies and localization of data.""There are capacity limitations that could be expanded.""I would like for the next release to replace the CDN being used for content delivery, there is currently a rather long delay.""The performance could be improved, but all the services in the cloud are improved every week.""If the documentation could be improved then it would be very good. Right now, if you face a question, you have to guess how it works or you have to test your hypothesis."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "In terms of pricing, Azure is quite cheaper than AWS. However, I have recently read that Oracle Cloud Generation 2 storage is quite cheaper than Azure. I haven't used it yet. We need to look at a customer's requirements, and, based on that, we can suggest the storage. You can save at least 20% with Azure as compared to AWS, which is quite costly."
  • "Azure Block Storage is higher priced than its competitors."
  • "We pay around $300 to $400 a month for some scenarios where consumption is limited. However, going forward, we're seeing the likelihood of the cost coming to around $2,000 as consumption rises."
  • "The price of Microsoft Azure Block Storage could be less expensive."
  • "The cost is very low. The cost is something like $0.01 to $0.50 per gig. It's pay per use. We have a yearly license."
  • "The price of Microsoft Azure Block Storage is less expensive than other solutions on the market, such as Cloud Storage from GCP."
  • "The storage part costs us $223. That's on a monthly basis for 20TB of data storage."

  • "I can only tell you that Wasabi costs about half what Amazon Web Services is charging. Now, the cost per month is a more difficult question. That varies depending on the capacity, the services you're employing, and that type of thing."
