Azure Disk Storage review by Muhammad Fahad B.

"Scalable and offers great throughput at competitive pricing"

What do you like best?

Starting with the standard offering, it's great for caching least accessed data. I usually ccache all software builds on extra standard HDDs. They're remarkably cheap per disk access and letting Azure manage it reduces the cost for on-premises deployment and management. The SSDs though are the real deal. Fast software development leaves plenty of time to focus on what matters the most (bugs bashing, improving and implementing features, etc).

What do you dislike?

They're costly. If you can squeeze out the resources for SSD, it is awesome. Otherwise you're pretty much stuck with their standard offering. Trust me, the lower tier is only good for storage, that's it. Also, you're pretty much limited with the size selection. HDDs allow variable disk size. I guess having variable size for higher tiers will make it more cost effective and ensuring only the amount required is allocated and deployed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We mostly automate software builds on our virtual machines powered by the Azure managed disk storage. Our code is stored on SSDs while any local caching is performed on the standard tier. I know this causes a little bottleneck but most software changes (such as releases) usually require a complete clean build.

What do you dislike?

Although ... I rediscover some problems in the management from the administration portal, it is all very chaotic and very often you can not find what you are looking for and that could serve.

Azure Disk Storage, allows you to save any data on the cloud, without the need for a physical infrastructure often complicated to manage.
