A large percentage of companies have a significant investment in the Microsoft ecosystem, and the Azure cloud platform does an excellent job of building on top of this existing envestment to create a solution that is greater than the sum of it's par

Our whole platform runs on Azure. It took us a while to figure it out, but no complaints after that.

Our cloud infrastructure builds on top of Microsoft platform. I would say that without Microsoft Azure, we can’t build our business. A great resource to go to production from development. Easy to manage all the servers from a centralized dashboard.

Buggy, bloated, and unreliable as the wind - Azure is an adventure and an experience in itself for thrillseekers everywhere. An extreme sport product of cloud computing - all the thrill of skydiving without a parachute.
