Azure App Service

If you are a large organization where you have a lot of traffics, Azure is good for you. If your scenario is something like, you sometimes have high traffic, and sometimes low traffic, and you got enough money, Azure is good for scaling up to your need. Azure is definitely not for you if your budget is low. Not suitable for low budget people AT ALL.

It's well suited if:
  • The organization has large number of applications that needs to be deployed frequently.
  • The organization is tied to the DevOps mindset.
  • The organization has programs in different languages.
  • The applications does not need EJB's support that servers like web logic provide.
It's less suited if:
  • The applications needs security configuration within the same CloudFoundry instance.
  • The organization, for whatever reason does not want developers to manage the instances.

Cons

Azure App Service

  • Jumps between resource sizes can get expensive
  • You may wind up putting a lot of eggs in one basket--not necessarily a con but something to keep in mind (most of your data will likely be managed and processed through Microsoft products/services if you fully commit to Azure App Service).
  • Learning new technology. If you're moving from on-premises to Azure App Service (or any cloud solutions), you'll likely have to rethink how things are done to achieve the same end results (and/or resources may become expensive quickly).

CloudFoundry

  • Does not support HTTP/2
  • Certain features such as persistent logging requires 3rd party vendor.
  • May require additional customization to build packs if you have specialized deployment/run requirements.

I give the Azure App Service support an 8 instead of a 10 because there are time when it is easier to google a problem and find an answer than it is to use the learning library to find an answer. I would say the universe of user group members willing to offer suggestions is amazing.

Alternatives Considered

Azure App Service

Azure App Service will give you a very solid and strong platform to deploy your applications. It gives you great interfaces to manage those applications either through a Web Portal or the Azure command-line interface. However, I consider Azure overall to be very complex and hard for newcomers to use it right away. I would consider Heroku first due to its extremely simple interface and abstraction of computing units.

While Docker shines in providing support for volumes and stateful instances, Cloud foundry shines in providing support for deploying stateless services.Heroku shines in integrating with Git and using commits to git as hooks to trigger deployments right from the command line. But it does not provide on-premise solution that Cloud foundry provides.

Return on Investment

Azure App Service

  • It's difficult to find the right APP because one software has number of apps so there's no way to find the official version of an app, so sometimes we need to install APP then find out which is performing well.
  • Little expensive.
sandeep singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

CloudFoundry

  • Quicker time to scale up.
  • Increased customer retention.
  • Higher application availability (less outage).
