"The most valuable feature is the level of processing power, and being able to complete tasks in parallel."
"The speed is great and the architecture is excellent."
"The solution offers strong scalability opportunities."

"The solution is self-securing. All data is encrypted and security updates and patches are applied automatically both periodically and off-cycle."
"While the solution is flexible, sometimes this works against the user."
"If I'm looking for something good in the cloud, I would want it to have better standard connectors."
"Documentation could be improved."
"The initial setup is complex."
"It needs strong support for social media, internet data, and native support for NoSQL."
"I am a researcher. For people to be able to research a solution, there should be at least a free trial. Just advertising a product or saying that this product is better doesn't work. I would strongly recommend providing a lot of free trials and trainings. This will also help Microsoft in having more users or customers. Oracle provides some free trials. You can just go for a free trial and use your database online, which is very good."
"Right now, we are really struggling with the performance. it's not as good as we had hoped."
"I'd like to see part of the service de-coupled."
"The solution could be improved by allowing for migration tools from other cloud services, including migration from Amazon Redshift, RDS, and Aurora."
"The initial setup was pretty complex. It was not easy."
"It is very important the integration with other platforms be made to be as easy as it is with an on-premises deployment."
"It doesn't work well when you have unstructured data or you need online analytics. It is not as nice as Hadoop in these aspects."
