Overall Satisfaction with Azure App Service

Azure App is being used to host our .NET applications. Runtime stack for these are .NET 2.1. Azure has good support for .NET applications. So we prefer using Azure for .NET.
It is integrated will with Azure DevOps. So we use piplelines to deploy code.
  • 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.
  • Some times our .NET API Service crashes and it is hard to find the root cause.
  • Quick Links to frequently used pages will help
  • PHP 8 is not supported yet.
  • Devops CI/CD piplelines
  • Azure Kubernetes
  • We use the Sprint Board for project Planning.
  • Download time is reduced because of auto scaling feature.
  • Insight tool helps in finding issues quickly.
  • CI/CD has helped in automation.
  1. We selected Azure over Linode because of the CI/CD integration with DevOps.
  2. Azure has integration with docker containers.
  3. Azure has intehration with Sprint Planning.
  4. If cost budget less than Linode is cheaper.
  5. Azure has auto scaling feature which is not there in Lonode.
  6. All of the server settings and deployment in Azure can be done from the UI. In Linode you will need some knowledge of cli commands.

Yes

Azure App Service is suited well for .NET runtimes. We don't need to do any IIS configuration. It is well integrated with DevOps so CI/CD pipelines can be configured.
Multiple applications cannot be hosted on the same Service. So it can get expensive for smaller apps.
