App Service

Azure App Service lets you create apps faster with a one-of-a kind cloud service to quickly and easily create enterprise-ready web and mobile apps for any platform or device and deploy them on a scalable and reliable cloud infrastructure.

Enabling productivity and innovation for more than 2 million apps and sites on Azure

Quickly build, deploy and scale web apps and APIs on your terms. Work with .NET, .NET Core, Node.js, Java, Python or PHP in containers, or running on Windows or Linux. Meet rigorous, enterprise-grade performance and security and compliance requirements with a trusted, fully managed service that handles more than 60 billion requests per day.

Fully managed service with built-in infrastructure maintenance, security patching and scaling

Built-in continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) and zero-downtime deployments

Support for virtual networks and the ability to run in an isolated and dedicated App Service Environment

Rigorous security and compliance standards, including SOC and PCI, for seamless deployments in the cloud, in Azure Government and on premises

Quickly build web apps and APIs in the cloud

  • Bring your code or container using the framework language of your choice.
  • Run on Kubernetes, anywhere across Azure, on-premises, and any CNCF-conformant Kubernetes cluster through Azure Arc.
  • Increase developer productivity with tight integration of Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio.
  • Streamline CI/CD with Git, GitHub, GitHub Actions, Atlassian Bitbucket, Azure DevOps, Docker Hub, and Azure Container Registry.
  • Reduce downtime and minimize risk for app updates by using deployment slots.

Scale web apps on an enterprise-grade service
