"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is the Area feature. Additionally, the SQL Server DB as a serverless pool is useful, storage-wide external tables are helpful, and PolyBase is very good at reading external data. The capacity of Synapse to analyze in analytics is very good and it supports a range of data."
"Microsoft Azure is scalable."
"The Azure Portal has an advantage in terms of UX making buying resources or downgrading is really easier to understand. AWS has micro, smaller functionalities whereas Azure has more end-to-end focus which makes it easier saving you time and money."
"Feature-wise, I like its stability. Also, it is easy to access the solution and its options."
"I have not had a problem with the stability. It is reliable."
"Microsoft Azure has a lot of useful features. They have databases, application services, PaaS solutions, such as platform and infrastructure services. The virtual machines' functions and services are good."
"The pricing is quite good, and it is designed as pay-per-use."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is its ease of use."
"Tanzu is easy to upgrade and scale, whether we're talking about horizontal or vertical scaling. It is as smooth as possible without any downtime. The platform maintenance, upgrading, and operations part is very smooth."
"The solution is integrated very well with a lot of other systems. Also, its GUI is very good."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is the ability to check the flow of all the different variants within our applications."
"The local support is fair but it is sometimes limited, the service could be better."
"I would recommend some enhancement regarding integration features."
"I would like to see it more easily accessible."
"It would be beneficial if Microsoft could enhance the free version to allow for more exploration and development. That's my only suggestion regarding Azure."
"It would be helpful if Azure provided more information on the various add-ons to give people an understanding of what they are used for, and how they're applied by other companies or businesses."
"Technical support needs to be better."
"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."
"Tanzu could provide more granular control over whatever networking is being done on the containers. I would also like to see a slightly more detailed view of application-level tracing. I'm referring to the connections between different microservices. If they added a service-matching feature, that would be helpful for the customers to build or be more effective."
"The solution is currently focused on VMware infrastructure and I would like to see more options made available."
"The solution's initial setup process was complex...The solution could benefit from improved customization and visibility for its users."
