Nordic Security Practice Lead at a computer software company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Fast to deploy and has a good security level
Pros and Cons
  • "Microsoft Azure Container Service has a good level of stability."
  • "I wasn't very impressed with the documentation."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is for training purposes, and for reading about what our colleagues do globally. So we basically use it for our customer projects.

What is most valuable?

Microsoft Azure Container Service is a great program and I like its usability and the time it takes to market. It is very fast to deploy as part of the DevOps and it has a good security level. So I think the usability and the pricing based on desktop cost make it a good product.

What needs improvement?

I believe that the support can be faster. I would also like to see easier implementation and better documentation. But it's also a Pandora's box. I believe that one can always do better. 

I also believe that security and integration can be better, so it would be nice to see an improvement there.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for just under a year now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Microsoft Azure Container Service has a good level of stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I believe the program is scalable. I am the only end-user of this program, so I don't have experience of how it will work in larger environments. Our clients are enterprise businesses.

How are customer service and technical support?

I am not sure about the technical support - it depends on the kind of issue I'm having and what the actual problem is. But I believe the SME network is important because they have experience from different customer cases. 

How was the initial setup?

I wasn't very impressed with the documentation, so if I had been able to follow the guidelines and employ an implementation, it would have been easier to set up and install the program. So I would say it was semi-easy, semi-difficult, in the middle.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is good.

What other advice do I have?

Of course, I can recommend this program to others, but they must first do an overall study and analyze the program to verify that it is business-driven, not technology-driven. In the next version, I would like to see better security because it is rather limited in this version. Updating the security would be great, as well as more integration of capabilities.

On a scale from one to 10, I will rate this program an eight. This is simply because I only use it in a lab environment - I don't have any other experience of the program.

The most valuable features are that it is simple, and the compression of the data.

We have fifteen users and two of them are engineers.

How are customer service and technical support?

To date, I have not contacted technical support and I correct the issues myself.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously I tried Carbonite. I switched because Microsoft Azure is more competitive and more stable.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is simple.

It took approximately two months to deploy this solution.

I am the administrator and the only person who maintains this solution. You only need one person.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented this solution. I did not use any vendors or integrators.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The only other solution that I had used and evaluated was called Carbonite.

What other advice do I have?
