Azure App Service provides an easy-to-operate cloud environment where you can quickly deploy websites or mobile applications.
Quickly deploy applications and schedule cloud resources with flexibility
APP Service not only adds Azure functionality to your programs, but also optimizes functions such as security, load balancing, automatic adjustment, and automatic management. You can also use DevOps functions from Azure DevOps, GitHub, Docker Hub, or other sources that provide services such as continuous deployment, package management, and environment preparation. The “pay-as-you-go” is also a major feature of this service. Users only need to pay for the volume of Azure used. This allows you to flexibly deploy cloud resources. Next, we have organized more product features to help you understand them all in one read-through:
Supports Multiple Programming Languages and Frameworks
App Service can support programming languages such as ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core, Java, Ruby, Node.js, PHP, and Python, and can also execute PowerShell and other commands or executable files as background services.
Controllable Execution Environment
App Service automatically patches and maintains the system, including programming language and architecture. This enables IT teams to spend time on writing programs, while you let Azure automatically handle platform issues.
Containerization and Docker
Dockerize your own programs, load custom Windows or Linux container templates in App Service, and use Docker Compose to execute multi-container applications to migrate your Docker directly to the App Service.
Use Azure DevOps, GitHub, BitBucket, Docker Hub or Azure Container Registry to set up continuous integration and continuous deployment; and use Azure PowerShell or Command Line Interface (CLI) to manage your applications.
Global Adjustments with High Availability
App Service SLA is highly available, meaning it can be adjusted manually or automatically; and you can install programs anywhere in Azure’s server.
Connection between the SaaS Platform and Internal Data Deployment
There are more than 50 systems (such as SAP), SaaS services (such as: Salesforce), web services (such as: Facebook), and other connections to choose from. Use hybrid connections and Azure virtual network docking to access deployment data.
Security and Regulatory Compliance
App Service is compatible with ISO, SOC and PCI. Users can be authenticated through various accounts, such as Azure Active Directory, Google, Facebook, Twitter or Microsoft, where they can establish IP restrictions and manage identities.
Diverse Application Templates
Multiple styles of application templates are available in the Marketplace, such as: WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.
Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code integration
The tools in Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code can simplify building, deployment, and debugging tasks.
API and Mobile Functions
It can provide RESTful API and simplify mobile application cases by enabling authentication, offline data synchronization, and push notifications.
Run code or script on demand, without needing to deploy or manage the infrastructure—you only need to pay for the computing time actually used by the code.
How it Works
With Azure App Service, applications can be quickly deployed and connected with cloud services, such as Azure Database. Azure VM can also use App Service to access data and use applications.
