A stable and widely accepted solution

What is our primary use case?

We use the hybrid version of Microsoft Azure Block Storage. We have a client based in the UK who utilizes the hybrid cloud. We also have a couple of archiving solutions there, as well as NetApp on TapCloud. 

The NFS solution goes into that, deployment is purely on the Azure cloud. The production areas and archiving solutions are mostly done on-premises, while testing and application development in some areas is purely cloud-based.

Block storage is used for the data that is configured for our servers. We have it for auditing purposes and as a compliance method.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Microsoft Azure Block Storage is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

As for scalability, we use other archiving solutions, NetApp on TapCloud, for example, because there are some limitations with capacity unless you extend the terabytes of data.

How are customer service and support?

It has been a couple of years since I contacted support. However, at that time, it was difficult to get someone on the call even though it was an issue of high severity.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for the production areas was on-premises, which is very simple.

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

Azure Block Storage is higher priced than its competitors. It is costly. The pricing is difficult to calculate as there are different tiers to select from. 

What other advice do I have?

Microsoft Azure Block Storage is widely accepted. People are choosing the enterprise solution. I would rate the solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
