Azure Spring Cloud

A fully managed Spring Cloud service, jointly built and operated with VMware

Simplify Spring Boot app development and management

Use Azure Spring Cloud to bring modern application patterns to Spring Boot and Steeltoe .NET Core apps, eliminating boilerplate code to quickly develop robust apps in the cloud.

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

Easily build your Java applications, from source to container, with the fully integrated VMware Tanzu Build Service

Enterprise tier with VMware Tanzu now available

Azure Spring Cloud Enterprise (preview) offers commercial VMware Tanzu components built specifically to address enterprise requirements around configuration, 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.

Accelerate development

Quickly develop and deliver your Java and Steeltoe .NET Core apps using fully managed Spring Cloud components, including service discovery, configuration management and distributed tracing. Just deploy your source code or build artifacts, and Azure Spring Cloud will automatically wire your app with the Spring Cloud infrastructure.

Deploy your first app

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 and Key Vault.

Include Spring starters in your app so that you don’t need to manually add dependency descriptors to your code. Spring starter development is open to the community, and we welcome code contributions.

Azure Spring Cloud pricing

For each app instance, you’ll be charged for one standard vCPU and memory group duration, which includes 16 GB of memory and 8 vCPUs. If you exceed either, or both, of the capacities in the standard vCPU and memory group duration, you’ll be billed for your actual additional usage based on the total standard overage memory duration and standard overage vCPU duration.

Frequently asked questions about Azure Spring Cloud

  • Azure Spring Cloud 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, blue-green deployments and more.
  • Azure Spring Cloud makes it easy to deploy Spring Boot-based microservice applications to Azure with zero code changes. Spring Cloud manages your application infrastructure so that you can focus on application code and business logic. Take advantage of built-in core features such as Eureka, Config Server, Service Registry Server, VMware Tanzu Build Service and blue-green deployment. Bind your applications with other Azure services, such as Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Database for MySQL and Azure Cache for Redis.
  • Your data security and privacy are top priorities. Through data encryption, Azure helps ensure that only authorised users access application data, logs and configurations.

    The service instances in Azure Spring Cloud are isolated from each other and deployed to security-hardened Azure Kubernetes clusters. Critical security patches for Zulu JDK and Spring Cloud runtimes are applied to Azure Spring Cloud.

    Additional security features include network isolation with Azure Virtual Network, enforced organisational compliance standards with Azure Policy and the ability to connect to other Azure services with Managed Identity.

  • Azure Spring Cloud offers two pricing tiers: Basic and Standard. The Basic tier is targeted at Dev/Test and trying Azure Spring Cloud, and the Standard tier is optimised for running general purpose production traffic. See Azure Spring Cloud pricing details for limits and feature-level comparison.
  • View the SLA for Azure Spring Cloud Standard tier. There is no SLA for the Basic tier.
