Azure App Service

If you are developing an application in .NET with Azure DevOps included with CI/CD deploying on Azure App Service is the best solution. It is very easy to integrate with Azure DevOps (compared to ESB of Amazon Web Services). It will scale up your web servers based on load and requests.In some case when you are just creating a web page it is not necessary to use it. You might use Azure storage instead that is cheaper.

Pros

Azure App Service

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).

  • Security groups need more granularity
  • Audit trails of what happens by who in environment, especially when VM is deleted

Based on 7 answers
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 has many data center, their services are more reliable. Azure has way more features than both Linode and DigitalOcean. If someone wants a complete reliable service, he/she must go to Azure instead of Linode and DigitalOcean because even though azure charges more, it is worth the money you pay there.
