Azure's service management portal is extremely user-friendly and intuitive, but the best part for me in my opinion is how it's integrated with our development tools. It gives you access to all the major areas of your account, including the computing instances and the SQL Azure database.
What do you dislike?
At times our systems need to do more than simply host a website or run a worker. Giving us the ability to integrate management of these types of Visual Studio services into the role configuration would greatly facilitate this process
Recommendations to others considering the product
Our first solution added to Azure Costs is a long-term service offering. That being said, we could not afford to spend a lot of money on something that might have a long tail for revenue. The Azure costs with its fair price served perfectly for us
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Azure Costs helped us expand our operations by adding new features that would put tremendous strain on our existing servers. Web and work functions were the perfect solution, allowing us to develop a front-end application linked to SQL Azure and an Azure service bus that transmitted data and messages to the back-end worker function. Processing jobs could take several hours of heavy computing, so unloading this work was imperative. Azure provided us with a cheap, robust and immediately scalable solution for this to happen and still generated us good energy and life savings of our handsets because they no longer need to work their intense 10 hours.
