Websites and apps
The Web Apps feature in 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 both web and mobile apps for employees or customers using a single back-end. Securely deliver APIs that enable additional apps and devices.
Familiar and fast
Use your existing skills to 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 connecting to cloud services such as Office 365 and Salesforce.com easy. Use templates to automate common workflows and accelerate your development. Experience unparalleled developer productivity with continuous integration using Visual Studio Team Services, GitHub and live-site debugging.
App Service is designed for building and hosting secure mission-critical applications. Build Azure Active Directory-integrated business apps that connect securely to on-premises resources, and then host them on a secure cloud platform that complies with ISO information security standard, 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
Azure App Service provides default containers for versions of Node.js and PHP that make it easy to quickly get up and running on the service. With our new container support, developers can create a customised container based on the defaults. For example, developers could create a container with specific Node.js and PHP builds that differ from the default versions provided by the service. This enables developers to use new or experimental framework versions that are not available in the default containers.
App Service provides availability and automatic scale on a global data centre infrastructure. Easily 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 ever 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. Never worry about maintaining or patching your infrastructure again.
