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.

If you want to have a cool VM, don't spend too much memory and mainly being multilanguage go ahead.Be aware there are some points that can be improved like a couple of languages are not accepted so far.Like used to, it's easy to use and you can find a lot of information regarding the tool so if you need to do something fast, it's a good choice.

Cons

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.

  • Native compiles. We have problems figuring out how to package jars with all dependencies for compilation. This might be our problem as we progress through the learning curve.
  • More support and testing for Sprint and GraalVM.
  • I recommend providing installer packages instead of downloading zip files.

The support we received when porting legacy applications from the GraalVM team and community was commendable. We were able to get assistance in introducing alternatives for the libraries we were using where appropriate. GraalVM support was also able to help us with some configuration options we were stuck with for configuring deployment environments on AWS compute.

Alternatives Considered

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.

GraalVM

Although, GraalVM supports Polygot architecture and it has all features to create a poweful application which deliver high performance and takes care of scalability. GraalVM also consists of a unique architecture for monolith application. It simplifies the runtime architecture and coordination. Easy to debug any issues and very handy to Java Developers.

Return on Investment

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.

GraalVM

  • Fast runtime, Fast startup and low memory footprint will save costly cloud compute and memory resources which in turn will provide cost savings.
  • No separate runtime installations for frontend and backend applications as GraalVM can run both JavaScript based frontend and Java based server side code.
  • Old legacy C/C++ libraries containing core business logic can be easily reused in the modern cloud-native services.
