"Microsoft Azure is scalable."
"It comes with a lot of ready-made studies that we can connect with other existing Microsoft applications, for example, Office, Outlook, Chatline, and OneDrive. Everything is behind the scenes running with Azure. It's easy to build the connectors."
"There are a lot of things that we like about it. It is very easy to provision and configure. It is flexible and scalable."
"The product has been very stable for us so far."
"Microsoft Azure is built for scalability."
"The system is more secure, and this is valuable."
"We are going to use Microsoft Azure to move some on-premise servers into the cloud so that our data can be held there."
"The ability to create the actual resource on the private cloud is easy to manage with Microsoft Azure."
"Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit."
"They seem to be more readily integrating with Azure, which is great."
"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea."
"I like having the ability to easily run Oracle Linux server instances and to deploy Oracle Middleware and WebLogic servers. Oracle's Infrastructure as a Service products are also very useful, and we're using those right now within Oracle OCI."
"The pricing of the solution is pretty good."
"Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases."
"The security on the solution is very good."
"It could be cheaper."
"With Microsoft, our only concern is exchange rates because we're paying in dollars. It's very expensive for us because of the exchange rates. It would help if they partnered with someone locally so we can pay in our local currency."
"Sometimes performance takes a hit on a slow network."
"The solution should emulate what MuleSoft is doing. At the moment MuleSoft has a lot of other features compared to Azure API integration."
"Ideally, Microsoft Azure should be compatible with the applications that we are using in my environment."
"As compared to AWS, Azure can improve its functionality. In terms of the feature list, it is still lacking a bit as compared to AWS. AWS supports lots of types of operating systems, which Azure is still catching up with. Azure is mainly focused on the Windows system, and it is not yet there in terms of integration with other operating systems like Linux, Unix. Azure is slowly catching up."
"They are a bit closed on the customization side. If they open the customization then it will be very good."
"They should include a cybersecurity feature to improve the protection of the systems. They could do better in terms of the pricing model. Its price keeps on changing. Their technical support can also be better."
"The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options."
"I work with many clouds and I would say, in comparison, others have a better presentation of services and they have clearer steps in terms of implementation."
"The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."
"Specific to the Oracle Cloud; while they have been able to showcase inbuilt features for Oracle applications, what doesn't really come across clearly is what happens when you want to host, work with, or integrate with applications outside of the Oracle stack."
"The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated."
"The initial setup can be a bit complex."
"Lacking in additional PaaS services."
"In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence."
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform, where developers can create, deploy, and maintain their apps. This cloud application platform allows developers to concentrate on the actual applications, while it takes care of all the elements behind the apps.
Windows Azure works across multiple frameworks and languages. It is fully scalable, localized in that it is hosted globally in many datacenters, and has widespread capabilities with elements of application development, deployment, and management.
Azure is comprised of several different service modules, including Infrastructure; Web; Mobile; Dev & Test; Big Data; Media;Storage, Backup & Recovery; and Identity & Access Management.

"It is a flexible solution that is straightforward to use," says the principal consultant at a computer software company.
“You can build an environment in minutes. It's very good in terms of being an infrastructure as a service, and I found that really fascinating,” says an information technology consultant at a computer software company.
"I think Azure's level of automation to achieve efficiency or agility is valuable. I also like the change capability cadence, the showback capabilities, and understanding what our costs are," says an enterprise architect at an energy/utilities company.
Marco C., Ing. at Wolters Kluwer, says "The valuable features of Microsoft Azure are that it is cloud-based and has good storage. The storage is completely managed by Azure. We do not need to do any patching of security because it is handled by Azure which is a benefit. The solution is fully compatible with the Microsoft technology stack and is very scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is it has everything together in one place. It is one large tool with lots of small tools that are updated often," says the owner of a media company.
The Oracle Cloud Platform (also known as Platform as a Service or PaaS) provides a shared and elastically scalable platform for consolidation of existing applications and new application development and deployment. The Oracle Cloud Platform delivers cost savings through standardization and higher utilization of the shard platform across multiple applications.
