"The initial setup was simple."
"Scalability, cluster ability, ease of use, ease of implementation — these are all great."

"The scalability could be better."
"Linux-based editions are not yet proven to be on par with Windows deployments."
"SQL Server could improve by having better usability or user guidance."

"We want to move to Azure, and the solution could be made better to make the process easier for the migration from on-premise to the cloud."
"The solution could be more secure."
"Microsoft doesn't have active-active load balancing scenarios. It's always a failover cluster."
