IT pros voice their Azure cloud management challenges

Microsoft Azure has made big strides in the cloud market over the past year, but some users still seek answers about how to best manage the public cloud platform.

While Amazon Web Services remains the undisputed public cloud king, Microsoft Azure is nipping at it heels. In 2015, Microsoft made a number of updates to its Azure public cloud offering -- including the addition of Azure Data Lake, the Internet of Things Suite and the Azure Container Service -- in hopes of luring more enterprise users on board.

Whether it's frustration over Azure's interface, or transient errors in Azure SQL, the people have spoken. So here's a round-up of recent Azure chatter from the Twittersphere.
