What do you like best?

The best and the easiest integration with other Microsoft services.Great Web console interface -- good for all advanced and beginner IT specialists.Regular security and functionality upgrades.Options to try the product/solution absolutely for free to understand if it works for your current environment and company needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Prices of services. That needs to be improved. In a small environment it is only so critical, but when you start growing it becomes a significant cost raise.Lots of basic things can take 45 min (changing the config of a gateway/load balance for example).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For .net applications, it's very well suited. We have different applications and other products in which we have used it—Web apps, API apps, Web Jobs and a few cloud services. Azure storage is also one of the options where we can store our images in the cloud as cloud is always good these days for hosting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Some of the functions only work in the classic portal.the dashboard design is confusing AF, it is difficult to find things. You pay the support, or send them a tweet and cross your fingers. Billing is confusing, especially at the beginning, and it is impossible to estimate costs without seeing the use of an entire application / site.

What do you like best?

This is such a great service for setting up SignalR quickly and easily. Any time you need a public site to push some data to another site, stop looking and jump on this service. The pricing model is fair for production and it sets up real easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When I first started looking into the service as a potential solution, it was hard to find the exact documentation I was looking for. I think the site probably could have done a little better sharing information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are other options out there, but Azure SignalR implements a tried and true interface for a stable product. The pricing is worth the level of software you are receiving. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We were trying to solve the problem of how to push updates to web pages from a driver page. This solves the problem exactly AND I don't have to worry about hosting the SignalR machine myself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

SignalR is the best approach to broadcast your content and with Azure, it is quite easy to set up. The cost might not be an issue if you are already working on Microsoft Technologies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

If you are currently hosted on some other environment other than Azure then it will not be much beneficial for purchasing Azure for SignalR. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

What do you like best?

Great easily accessible user portal, easy to API integrate for a much more efficient workflow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The initial implementation was difficult - the customer service wasn't necessarily 'great' but it was decent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

After breaking off from a management company that managed all of our platforms and workflows, we needed something new and more manageable since we no longer have a team of individuals available when it comes to setting up integrations and just in general are much more short handed. Easier self serve services like these help a lot when you are scaling back on manpower. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
