    I get that it's an orchestration tool and all, but don't see a good case for using it in a purely Azure or AWS environment. Your templates are not portable between the platforms, so it just provides a common template syntax. 

    Downsides are pretty big though - feature lag is pretty bad (months of wait to get support for latest ARM features), planning feature is not all that useful in a more complex environment either.
