"It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward."
"It is 100% stable. It is also scalable."
"This product is very competitive."
"I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable."
"The performance is good."
"It's definitely good for unstructured data. In earlier days, we had Centera, so for the DR it's really good. It has load balancing facility, and we're using it with the Kemp Load Balancer."
"The stability is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor."
"The solution has given us more agility, scalability and opportunity to optimize the cost."
"Technical support has been good over the years."
"One of the most valuable features of Microsoft Azure is the compatibility with all of our Windows applications and other Microsoft technologies"
"The redundancy across different regions is the most valuable. It provides a big value for cloud services, especially for Microsoft."
"I think the single sign-on functionality and the ease with which you can deposit things on the cloud have been valuable. Azure has very robust security functionalities and authentication features, which come with mobility, along with backup and credential checks."
"The support is responsive and dedicated to SMEs."
"Microsoft Azure is scalable."
"If you have large traffic amounts, Microsoft Azure will continue to provide our customers with the best storage experience."
"They do not have complete documentation, which is very weak and could be improved."
"You should be able to calculate so that when it's full it's 100% full, not just 90%."
"The disaster recovery could be improved because there should be something in-built within the ECS. Search and recovery should be in-built. Right now, we have to use some external tools for performing the recovery itself. For example, we're using Atempo or deploying Golden Superna, so it has dependency on the external third party vendors."
"The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems."
"The solution could be more cost-effective and secure."
"In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support."
"Its security can be improved."
"Technical support needs to be improved."
"Price could always be better. The features come in quickly, so we're comfortable with the feature set that is available to us."
"I would like to see this solution support integration."
"At this point, the latency is too high to use Azure in our production environment."
"Due to the pandemic, I haven't been able to utilize their full resources. This has made it complicated to scale up. I hope this will be resolved after the pandemic."
"It would be advantageous if the dashboard had more clarity, in terms of the visibility that it provides."
"At times, the support is terrible."
"For deploying multiple resources in a big number, such as in hundreds, we need a streamlined process and more user-friendly scrips. The scripts have to be more user-friendly, and they should also supply some standard templates to deploy multiple resources at a time. Currently, it is very easy to deploy a couple of resources, but if you want to deploy multiple resources, it becomes complex. The material that they provide for integration with an existing on-prem data center is complex. They have to make them user-friendly. The scripts related to resource management need to be simplified."
"They can improve the number of requests. Maybe they can increase it from 5,000 requests to 10,000 requests a month. Sometimes when you try to connect, it is quite unresponsive. When you want to communicate using the API, you get an internal error."
Dell EMC Elactic Cloud Storage (ECS) provides a complete software-defined object storage platform designed for today's cloud-scale storage requirements. ECS provides the simplicity and low cost benefits of the public cloud without the risk, compliance, and data sovereignty concerns. ECS benefits include:
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform where developers can create, deploy, and maintain their apps. This cloud application platform allows developers to concentrate on the actual applications, while it takes care of all the elements behind the apps.
Windows Azure offers open across multiple frameworks,languages, and tools. It is fully scalable, localized in that it is hosted globally in many datacenters, and has widespread capabilities are, catering for all elements of application development, deployment, and management.
Azure is comprised of several different service modules,including Infrastructure; Web; Mobile; Dev & Test; Big Data; Media;Storage, Backup & Recovery; and Identity & Access Management.
