Websites and apps
The Web Apps feature of Microsoft Azure App Service lets developers rapidly build, deploy and manage powerful websites and web apps. Build standards-based web apps and APIs using .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python and Java. Deliver web and mobile apps for employees or customers using a single back-end. Deliver APIs that enable additional apps and devices more securely.
Familiar and fast
Code in your favourite language and IDE to build APIs and apps faster than ever. Access a rich gallery of pre-built APIs that make it easy to connect to cloud services such as Office 365 and Salesforce. Use templates to automate common workflows and accelerate your development. Get unparalleled developer productivity with continuous integration using Visual Studio Team Services, GitHub and live-site debugging.
Use App Service to build and host highly secure mission-critical applications. Build Azure Active Directory-integrated business apps that connect more securely to on-premises resources, then host them on a highly secure cloud platform that complies with ISO information security standards, SOC2 accounting standards and PCI security standards. Automatically back up and restore your apps, all while enjoying enterprise-level SLAs.
Build on Linux or bring your own Linux container image
App Service provides default containers for versions of Node.js and PHP that make it easy to get up and running on the service. With container support, developers can create a customised container based on the defaults. For example, developers can create a container with specific builds of Node.js and PHP that differ to the default versions provided by the service. This enables developers to use new or experimental framework versions that aren’t available in the default containers.
App Service provides availability and automatic scale on a global data centre infrastructure. Scale applications up or down on demand, and get high availability within and across different geographical regions. Replicating data and hosting services in multiple locations is quick and easy, making expansion into new regions and geographies as simple as a click of a mouse.
Optimised for DevOps
Focus on rapidly improving your apps without worrying about infrastructure. Deploy app updates with built-in staging, roll-back, testing-in-production and performance testing capabilities. Achieve high availability with geo-distributed deployments. Monitor all aspects of your apps in real time and historically with detailed operational logs, and don’t worry about maintaining or patching your infrastructure.
