Why Node.js on Azure?

Powerful tooling

Easily deploy Node.js code to Azure from Visual Studio Code. If you prefer using command line tools (CLI), Azure has those, too. Both are built in the open, with tools, SDKs, and extensions on GitHub.

Host Node.js apps your way

Run full-stack apps directly on our managed Linux service, in serverless Functions, or in containers using Docker or Kubernetes. Host static sites directly from Azure Storage.

Easy to grow

Quickly add services and capabilities like MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and MySQL databases, performance monitoring, continuous integration, and secrets management as your needs expand.

Kick start your cloud-enabled JavaScript and TypeScript apps using the latest unified SDKs. Streamline your cloud development with features such as HTTP retries, logging, and transport and authentication protocols. Learn more in the SDK guidelines, or download the SDKs to get started.
