    "Azure had the best pricing of several options, and it was better aligned to our strategy because we use a great deal of Microsoft software."

    Philip Ball, Chief Technical Officer at Serko

    "For the second year in a row, Microsoft is the top CSP for public cloud storage. In our most important suite of tests—the benchmark tests—Microsoft consistently performed better than Amazon. It delivered the best speeds across small and medium-sized files and, in some cases, beat Amazon by nearly 2x."
