          Windows Azure is more difficult to configure than some other cloud based technologies, however, it makes up for it with the incredible integrations and ease of development on mobile platforms (Android, iOS and of course Windows Phone).

          The Azure Web Sites is a PaaS that is very easy to setup and is pretty powerful.

          If you want VMs you can have them and even program when they come online.

          There are tons of ways to use this service and there are a lot of free things you can get in order to try it out. The only downside is that you have to learn a new, although very powerful, platform.

          We use Microsoft Azure because many of our clients are already Azure for their private cloud. Additionally, Azure supports App Service Environments (ASE), which isolates the application resources and gives us a static IP for securely accessing external resources

          Additionally, MSSQL supports columnstore tables which is critical for running fast analytics over large datasets

          My favourite cloud with all the great tools - web apps, mobile apps, storages, easy tables, blobs, app insights, cosmos DB... I think it is really usable and ergonomic. Plus point for mobile app.

          We currently host PRS and EARS on Azure as they are .Net apps, but we are currently porting these services to Scala and will be hosting them on Heroku with the other P2 SRX services.

          Blackbaud makes use of Azure and my current job is with Blackbaud. Therefore, due to the free credit and the ability to reuse tools, I rely on Azure quite a bit.
