PC Magazine Rates Microsoft Azure…

Good Azure review from STEVEN J. VAUGHAN-NICHOLS

Microsoft Azure is one of the easiest clouds to get up and running. Once in place, it’s also among the easiest to manage.

PROS

  • Windows compatibility. Linux and container compatibility (yes, you read that right). Good front-end management interface.

CONS

  • Average performance. High cost.

BOTTOM LINE

  • Those who have built their businesses around Windows will want to use Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution Microsoft Azure. Those who rely on Linux should still take a close look at Microsoft Azure as Microsoft does a decent job there as well.
