Pros
"The most valuable feature is the cost value, which is very important for long term retention.""The key feature for us is the possibility to have a copy of our data and machines outside of our premises just in case of a disaster.""The metadata that the solution provides is quite valuable for us. If we need to analyze the latest data from a particular department or particular user, we can simply query through the metadata we store in Azure Object Storage and simply fetch those records which are maybe one day or one month old. this metadata storage is really handy for us.""This product is very reliable and all of the security that our client requires is available.""With Microsoft Azure Object Storage, they are an open market.""The most important thing for me is reliability.""It is easy to use, and we use it for backup and remote desktop access.
