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.

In case you want a cheaper PaaS that may be available in your country (Brazil, in my case), you may give Jelastic a try. There are some other strong competitors for the PaaS scenario with free versions, but the paid versions are far more expensive.

Pros

Azure App Service

  • It has options to deploy using CI/CD.
  • It has great integration with Azure Devops
  • It has all the common runtimes, so we don't need to install softwares.

Jelastic

  • Easy to use, the interface guides you to create your application.
  • Custom SSL certificate. You can upload your own certificates and it will configure them for you.

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).

  • SSH is still tricky to use. You have to log in to a gateway and go to an option menu to get logged in. Sometimes it was not available or too slow.
  • Some errors are not clear enough. It took some time to understand which files I had to upload to get my custom SSL certificates working.

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 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.

The price of Jelastic for the paid version (considering SSL) is better.

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.

  • It has powered my project since its creation. It's a small project but I did not have any problems until now.
