Pros

I have been a huge fan of Microsoft Azure. The simplicity of being able to access your files from anywhere in the world and any device that has an internet connection is wonderful.
Azure Backup is a very good tool that has allowed the company to store and retrieve information easily. It is very important tool that is very cost effective and easy to maintain.
It's got wonderful customer support. Setting up Windows Server applications is a pleasure and I would definitely recommend Azure Storage to others.

Pros

I do admit to not being very impressed with their support, and occasionally we've had issues with server uptime, but their pricing is fair and the tool is powerful.
If you are using other elements of the Zoho suite there are good integrations and Creator would be great for adding functionality for the likes of first-line workers in the organisation.
It is truly an amazing platform to run your business with ease. Being able to solve the clients business problems and helping them build an app with zoho platform is really an amazing experience.

Cons

Because Microsoft's service covers practically full-time operation, we no longer have to worry about malfunctions or offline structure.
Also, if you forgot a DEV machine on over the night, with no need, you will be charged.
Significantly more difficult to use compared to GCP and AWS. The UX/UI is flat-out terrible.

Cons

Is also strange that most of the answers in the forum are only visible for the user that asked the question, making it almost useless for users trying to troubleshoot an error.
Another issue I have had to cope with several times is the lack of a time-only field, not date-time. I had to use workarounds when I needed the user to input time.
Lack of platform support, clunky UI, does many things sort of okay but doesn't do anything well.
