Node.js on Azure

Host your Node.js apps on a productive, flexible platform.

Deploy your first Node.js app in minutes.

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 such as MongoDB, PostgreSQL and MySQL databases, performance monitoring, continuous integration and secrets management as your needs expand.

Deploy and manage Node.js code from anywhere
