I’ve been looking at Azure for a long time, hearing all the glowing reports about how well integrated the platform is and how easy it is to move things get up and running. This post is kind is a bit of a rant and chronicles some of the issues I’ve run into with Azure VMs. It’s not meant to bash, but rather I’m trying to document what I experienced and to see if maybe – just as is often the case – I hit a weird edge case. I’m also interested in what others see with Azure in terms of performance and stability and consistency.
