We use Azure App Service to build full-fledged custom web-based software solutions for small and medium-sized businesses in a variety of markets. The Azure App Service coupled with .NET, Entity Framework, and other Azure features (storage, tables, etc.) make it easy to quickly build fully-functional apps, and we're able to do so so much quicker than when we were using the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP). Plus, we can scale resources with a click instead of needing to migrate to different servers and manually handle load balance, etc.
  • Super quick & easy to deploy new apps in visual studio
  • Easy scaling to help reduce costs during off-hours
  • The powerful Azure ecosystem offers a lot of functionality that ties in well with 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).
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.

We are using Azure App Service for hosting our WordPress platform. It's quick to launch store from App store. we were using AWS services but I feel Azure is much better and quicker.
  • High level of security.
  • Global scale with high availability.
  • Visual studio integration.
  • Actionable info and quick analytics.
  • I feel Visual Studio integration is little complex.
  • There's room to improve Analytics.
  • Application Templates need some more details.
In Azure App it's too easy to deploy apps like Drupal, WordPress, LAMP server, etc. Just a few clicks. Sometimes we need to work very fast & do some testing on DEV server so this is best for us.

We are using Azure App Service to get a handle on organizing and staying current with our ever-increasing offering of mobile and web-based apps for our customers, dealers, and installers. Before using Azure App Service, we had the apps hosted where ever the developer of the day hosted their stuff. We had no idea when we had staff turnover of where they all were. Azure App Service helped us keep everything in one place, and we could better track usage and version control.
  • Single source for ALL of our apps.
  • Revision control is easy with the info we embed into the apps.
  • It is a bit overpowering at first to get up to speed. You need to have an Azure ninja available to help you set things up right from the start. If you don't, you can waste a lot of time redoing things the way you should have in the beginning.
  • Be ready to invest in having the right people on you staff to manage this for you.
Azure App Service is well suited for people who are willing to learn a robust system and make all the features work for you. The one downside is that it is easier to google help issues than to use the learning library to figure things out.

Azure App Service, a great platform - yet a bit complex interface

During my time at the company, Azure App Service was used to deploy ASP NET Core applications. It was used throughout the whole organization and we had multiple applications deployed there. It was pretty useful since we could deploy our applications directly from Visual studio, never leaving our code editor environment. We could modify the settings from the Azure portal or with the Azure command-line interface.
  • Simple app deployment from Visual Studio.
  • Easy interfaces: Azure CLI and Azure Portal.
  • No server maintenance. We could scale easily by just modifying some settings in the portal.
  • Abstraction of computing resources like Heroku does with dynos.
  • Azure Portal overall is pretty bloated and that affects managing Azure App Service applications.
If your application is developed in Visual Studio IDE (usually .NET applications), it will be extremely easy to deploy your applications to Azure App Service. Visual Studio IDE already has the functionality to deploy there with very few clicks.

Due to the complexity and bloatedness of Azure Portal, I would recommend less complex platforms like Heroku for less-experienced developers.
