Most the reviews are questionable

We have been a AZURE partner for some time now and after reading the reviews here I see a common thread. Lack of trained MST Partner who can assist with securing the platform. Azure is a platform that can do most anything. ... More And there is the underlying problem; Azure can be very complex. Wildly guessing at packages and taking a stab at the platform can lead you to disaster. Misconfiguration is the number one issue most people have. If you are going to be deploying a professional environment seek out a AZURE pro to help.
Configured correctly and built out with the correct packages Azure is, in my opinion, the most reliable and power platform available right now.

I can set up servers optimised for WordPress (or stack you like) with just a few clicks + the ability to SSH in and use CLI as well. Super fast servers & excellent support!

Piszą że hosting aplikacji WEB darmowy po czym z konta znika 140 Euro. Azure może poinformować o zmianie darmowych usług lub nie... Przy zakładaniu konta Azure w przeciwieństwie chociażby do Webio wymagają podania danych kart... More y kredytowej, gdyż z góry planują sprać klienta. Less

forget it that you get "VPS" or "MANAGED" its just plain shared VPS if you wont go with amazon or google cloud.
SO BASICLLY YOU PAYING HIGH PRICES FOR SHARED HOSTING WITHOUT ANY BENEFITS.

Support isn't really knowlegebale so..
