Azure Spring Apps
Build and deploy Spring Boot applications with a fully managed service from Microsoft and VMware
Simplify Spring Boot application development and management
Azure Spring Apps is a platform as a service (PaaS) for Spring developers. Manage the lifecycle of your Spring Boot applications with comprehensive monitoring and diagnostics, configuration management, service discovery, CI/CD integration, and blue-green deployments.
Fully managed application development with built-in service discovery and configuration management
Joint engineering, operation and integrated support by Microsoft and VMware
Quickly troubleshoot or identify bottlenecks with Azure Monitor interoperability
Easily build your Java applications, from source to container, with the fully integrated VMware Tanzu Build Service
Ship faster with Enterprise tier and VMware Tanzu
Securely deploy, operate, and scale enterprise Spring Boot applications on Azure. Azure Spring Apps Enterprise offers commercial VMware Tanzu components built to address enterprise requirements around configuration management, integration, portability, flexibility, and support. Use commercial versions of Tanzu Build Service, Application Configuration, Service Registry, and more, all backed by support from VMware and Microsoft.
Drive higher app utilisation
Be more productive and cost efficient by automatically scaling your Spring Boot applications using the autoscale feature. Choose load- or metric-based mode to scale as needed, or choose schedule-based mode to scale based on a predefined schedule and limits—apps never go above or below the defined limits.
Monitor and troubleshoot your apps
Gain deep insights into application dependencies and operational telemetry using Azure Monitor. Aggregate metrics for a topological view of how different services interact, and see average performance and error rates. Easily identify the root cause of reliability issues and performance bottlenecks.
Extend your apps using Spring starters
Use a large portfolio of Spring starters to easily interact with Azure services such as Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), and Key Vault. Include Spring starters in your app so you don't need to manually add dependency descriptors to your code. Spring starter development is open to the community, and code contributions are welcome.Learn more about Spring on Azure
Simplify infrastructure management
Run your Spring Boot and Steeltoe .NET Core apps on a fully managed service with scalable global infrastructure. Reduce downtime and deployment risk with turnkey support for blue-green deployments.Learn more about deployment strategies

Jonathan Jones, Lead Solutions Architect, Group Finance IT, Swiss Re
"'Cloud–native' must provide tangible results. Azure Spring Apps helps by taking away the implementation and management effort so we can focus on our core competencies."
Armando Guzman, Principal Software Engineer, Unified Commerce, Raley’s
"Azure Spring Apps has allowed Raley's to quickly develop and deploy new apps while exceeding customer and developer expectations."
Kurt Roggen, Infrastructure and Security Architect, Liantis
"Azure Spring Apps was a strategic fit for Liantis because we can really focus on building the application, whereas Microsoft provides and secures the application platform. That's why Azure Spring Apps is a great fit."
Philipp Stussak, Software Architect, Bosch
"We are Java developers. We are not infrastructure guys. We are not system administrators. With Azure Spring Apps, we don't have to worry about managing Kubernetes or cluster downtime."
Devon Yost, Enterprise Architect, Digital Realty
"Azure Spring Apps is paramount to our architecture, because of its ease of use and the fact that it's a fully managed offering. Coupled with the REST APIs that we have developed, we have a truly powerful, resilient, and global platform."

Frequently asked questions about Azure Spring Apps
Azure helps ensure that only authorised users access application data, logs, and configurations. The service instances in Azure Spring Apps are isolated from one another and deployed to security-hardened Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters. Use additional security features such as network isolation with Azure Virtual Network, enforced organisational compliance standards with Azure Policy, and the ability to connect to other Azure services with managed identities.
