Microsoft Azure

Strengths: Azure's IaaS and PaaS components operate and feel like a unified whole, Gartner noted.

"Microsoft has been rapidly rolling out new features and services, including differentiated capabilities" in line with a vision that extends into on-premise infrastructure, development tools and applications.

Microsoft also has an "aggressive roadmap."

Cautions: Microsoft still hasn't introduced all the critical features needed to meet the needs of enterprises for security, availability, performance, networking flexibility and user management.

Customers are also concerned about the impact of many past Azure outages, "which may necessitate ensuring that critical applications on Azure have a non-Azure disaster recovery solution."

Microsoft's partner ecosystem is still relatively nascent. Many of the MSPs Microsoft has recruited still lack extensive experience with the Azure platform, "which could compromise the quality of the solutions they deliver to customers."
