Pros

The pleasure of sharing important content such as videos and graphics that I want to share in a comfortable, fast and secure way without any restrictions is invaluable.

Microsoft Azure is a great platform that provides secure and reliable data sources for our company which is very important. It is easy to use and very effective software.

Azure gives you the peace of mind of a super powerful machine with adequate storage for you to do your job.

Pros

Cost effective with all the features that very high costing solutions have - we trialed 10 different solutions before selecting vanilla as they winner. New features rolled in all the time.

Joe B.

Vanilla is very easy to use and manage, looks good, offer great gamification that make our community fun, great value for money, good training materials, easy solution to support multilingual.

By distributing badges, we reward our top users and most engaged people and makes the platform a little more fun. The support team is super reactive as well, whenever there is an issue.

Cons

In Brazil, being charged on a dollar basis is very expensive, it is difficult to pass this on to the customer. The recent 21% readjustment was abusive.

Also, if you forgot a DEV machine on over the night, with no need, you will be charged.

I received and email (turns out from a Bot) and this was ignored apart from a missed call from someone, who I then could not get hold of.

Cons

It was unclear what changes would happen with a recent update, it's been left down to the forum owner to find the weird behaviors (such as filters not working correctly).

The problem with vbBulletin was one of stability: we were having frequent outages in one incident we had to close the forum for about a month to deal with issues.

That we did not discover it until last year. Seriously, I would be hard-pressed to identify anything about this platform that I disliked.
