Most the reviews are questionable
Jason Erickson,

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.

A few issues
Francoise Bencke,

The platform is great. However, there is an issue with my cdn and my website and after 48 hours it still has not been resolved. I am aware that I have a standard support package but this should be part of the package as it is... More from their end. One other issue which I was not aware when I decided to go with them is that they are using a late version of PHP. Not great for speed. You have to be on the next suppôt level, to be upgraded at a cost of £100 support for at least 6 months. Not happy right now. Less

Ils te disent que les services sont gratuits pendant 12 mois.
Tu vas dans la section 'services gratuits', tu choisis base sql server, tu crée ta base et 2 mois ils te tendent une facture incompréhensible de 144 dollars!
Ils t... More e font croire que tu n'as pas choisi la bonne option et que tu as réservé l'infrastructure, l'option pay-as-you-go était masqué!
C'est quoi cette arnaque?
