Likelihood to Recommend

Apache Flex

If your site is purely animations (like some company timeline from the start of the company to the current date), it's well suited for this use case.

Azure App Service

Azure App Service is great if you're starting a new web project and need an infrastructure that is fast, stable, secure, and scalable. The service has a very high up-time, and it supports a variety of languages and technologies (though it really shines with the .NET stack - C#, ASP.NET, Entity Framework, etc.). If you're thinking about porting an existing app over, it may wind up being expensive as far as resources go if the software isn't properly optimized to utilize cloud resources efficiently, so that's something to keep in mind.

Pros

Apache Flex

  • Highly advanced UI platform, well suited for building enterprise applications.
  • Cross browser issues do not exist as it runs the same on every browser via Flash Player.
  • Animations are something that comes out of the box.

Azure App Service

  • Single source for ALL of our apps.
  • Revision control is easy with the info we embed into the apps.

Cons

Apache Flex

  • It's heavy as it needs to load the Flash plugin first before rendering anything to the user.
  • Not future ready as there is no support for mobile and tablet platforms.
Abraham Madathil | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure App Service

  • Abstraction of computing resources like Heroku does with dynos.
  • Azure Portal overall is pretty bloated and that affects managing Azure App Service applications.

Azure App Service

After exhaustive testing, we settled on Azure App Service because we felt they offered the best solutions in the price range we willing to pay for. It also was a natural extension of our website hosting package on Azure, and it is nice to be organized in one place.

Return on Investment

Apache Flex

  • Our users have a great positive feedback from the UI point of view.
  • The ease of use of the application had doubled our existing user base.

Azure App Service

  • Azure App Service has allowed us to quickly deploy high-budget projects very quickly, netting us a healthy profit vs the cost to develop. (We make, on average, about 10x what it costs to get up and running per project thanks to how easy it is to implement a skeleton framework.)
  • Costs are low to run the services thanks to the scaling functionality that comes with Azure App Service. We can utilize less resources during slow times and save hundreds of dollars per month vs costs of traditional servers.
