"Azure Linux VM could be very useful to any organisation :)"

What do you like best?

The following are the few points which I like the most about this tool:

- Highly customizable

- Easy to Use

- Easy to Setup, provided the user needs to go through the steps available on its website ( just during the first attempt. )

- Highly Secure

What do you dislike?

The most important thing which I don't like about this product is its cost, it is expensive and cheaper alternatives are available in the market. Another point which could be improved is its user interface, for a beginner it could be difficult to remember all the sub options available.

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

We deploy our product on the Azure Linux Virtual Machines and offer these machines for development/testing purposes to all the members of our team. This product plays an important role in achieving Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment.

"Azure - Great for Linux "

What do you like best?

The ability to create templates for deploying different services, combined with the flexibility of using powershell and the Azure CLI makes continuous integration easier.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes new features that are in public preview can be somewhat temperamental. These features can change too, so investing dev time in a great feature months later can result in the need to rework some things.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time learning how to write templates from scratch. Simply copying the generated templates and hoping they will be reusable is a bad idea. There is lots of documentation on the template system.

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

We are migrating a legacy Linux system that is tied to a VMware legacy machine in our office into “the cloud”

"Excelent performance and lots of plans to choose"

What do you like best?

Running Virtual Machines on cloud using Microsoft Azure impressed me a lot. I was a little bit cetic about performance when running cloud environments, but it was really good on Azure. I/O performance is fair, even using mechanical HD's on VM's (because they are cheapper), performance are pretty much equivalend to a real mechanic HD. And its pretty cheap. You can pick vm's with 4 cores and a decent amount of RAM for a fair price.

What do you dislike?

I can't really remember something i dislike about it. Everything worked well and without any problems. The environment is very stable.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Azure Linux Virtual Machines. Running your environments on cloud is easy and performatic.

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

"Azure -- Compatible and ease for Linux"

What do you like best?

Initially, the team will need some guidance but once they follow the guide it's very easy to set up like for creating a template for services deployment. If org is in continuous integration it's very easy to work with Azure infra setup

What do you dislike?

Freshers need to follow the guide to set up initiale templates. It may also require a learning exercise.You also need to follow with upcoming features periodically so that developers dont invest time again in learning

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

Its the main infra setup within our organization

Definitely been a very easy experience. Positive experience in my part.

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

Deployments of the sharepoint server.
