It is very well suited for anything that can be put into a container, especially if horizontal scaling is possible with the product you are building. It just works.
Also, [it is well suited] to quickly push things into production, as there is not much ceremony. Just push a container, create application and off you go. Also, it's very appropriate with uneven loads as it easily scales both up and down.
It is less appropriate when [you are using] a static computer or to retain data somehow and you don't want to use network storage of some kind or database (just save things locally).

.NET is well suited for any general purpose solution to a business problem, though if we are talking strictly the framework version - you have to be more or less tied to Microsoft Windows to run it. If this isn't a problem, then it will be able to address and solve any programming project you have.

Cons

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • It is limited to 100 apps per project
  • It is limited to 100 jobs per project
  • The total combination for all of the apps and jobs cannot exceed 256 GB of memory

.NET

  • .NET is heavily Microsoft Windows oriented, and while .NET core tried to resolve that with MacOS and Linux support, .NET Core is still waiting for wider adoption.
  • While free for small projects, additional features for big projects can be a little expensive.
  • Can be resource-heavy upon deployment. We continuously have our more senior staff optimize the code of our junior developers for performance. Other languages are a little bit more forgiving in comparison.

The first thing that comes in mind is the IDE is a software suite that provides must-have tools for a developer to build and test software applications. The default IDE for .NET applications is Microsoft Visual Studio, which is a sophisticated tool to build apps. Intellisense is a favorite for developers to write code easily without remembering all the functions at the time of development. It supports multiple programming languages - C#, VB, F#, C++ based on individual skill sets.

Customer support has been amazing. .NET has an amazing online community that is very supportive. The abundance of .NET developers online as well as in the office has sped up our time to market.When we have a problem and need to submit a ticket to Microsoft, their support has been extremely helpful and prompt.

The .NET platform has a much longer and broader history than Laravel, so we chose to go with it as the support will be far superior. Additionally, Laravel is tied to PHP, while you can use multiple different languages in .NET. The additional flexibility that .NET provides in the range of types of applications you can build with it sealed the deal.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • [One] positive is that we have one tool to learn (and a simple one) for all kinds of deployment. We need less people to maintain the system.
  • We have saved a lot of time on trouble shooting. It's clear how it works. It's "just" kubernetes..

.NET

  • There are few factors we needed for our custom development. Below are each of them. We were able to get a satisfactory outcome for each of these factors which made .NET platform a very good choice in developing enterprise applications.
  • Reusability of codes- Microsoft has given many re-usable codes and components in the framework to help developers do their job effortlessly. With the help of default features, developers can create end-to-end solutions and make the business operations more efficient. As codes and components are reusable, .NET reduces development time and if applications take less time to develop, they cost cheaper and you get faster return on investment.
  • Easy to maintain- Development cost is one time, but maintenance cost is incurring. .NET apps are easily maintainable, thanks to the configuration settings that can be modified without any need to rewrite the code.
  • Deployment is hassle free- Deploying software is always challenging and the most common problem developers face in this process is the existence of multiple DLLs. It’s hard to make sure that all DLLs will co-exist in the same machine. .NET framework solves this problem by allowing different versions of the same DLL to exist side-by-side on the same machine.
  • Security- .NET is one of the most secure web and application development frameworks available in the market. As it’s made by Microsoft, you can be absolutely sure about the security measurements. Hackers can never steal valuable data from your website or apps.
  • Cross platform friendly- What if you had developed an app for desktop and laptop computers and now after seeing the growth of mobile apps in the market, you want it in mobile version as well? You can easily develop an app that runs on the desktop and PDA without any issue. As you can re-use the codes and utilize the same development environment, your job becomes a lot simpler.
