"easy deploying, easily scale-able easy to manage and use"

What do you like best?

Azure web apps are very easy to deploy, easy to maintain and easy to scale both horizontal and vertically. Azure web apps are are server less and manage and maintain on servers. You can easily deploy this web apps and the best part is these application are not vendor locking which means that if you think that your application is not running as expected on the Azure platforms you can carry your codes and deploy on other vendors. Azure web apps are flexible and easily you can diagnose this web applications.

you can also deploy this web apps as Azure functions and logic apps. you can auto scale your web apps easily based on your workloads.

You can write codes in Java, node js, php, phyton, .net and many mores.

What do you dislike?

what I dislike is cold start for new instances on which your application is deployed. when ever a new instance is scale up it remains in cold state and any request going to that new instance in cold state takes lot of time to execute which may result in time out connection.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Azure web apps are just few click to deploy, you can go for server less Architecture using the Azure web apps which is very reliable and easy to manage and deploy

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we are using web applications in our Dev and Prod environment. We use the web apps for E-commerce web site which are very flexible . Azure web apps is very much integrated with 3rd party monitoring tools which are very helpful for us.

"Web apps and web services "

What do you like best?

they are easy to deploy thanks to profiles or directly through Visual studio and they are super easy to integrate with other services thanks to azure key vault and MSI. I loved how easy it was to implement secuirty when using a tier than the free one. I found awesome that is comes with its own a console which can be accessed by modifying the URL

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I had to redeploy webapps for them to work properly

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I created some web apps, and API's which communicated with other Azure services sometimes providing extra security layers thanks to the web app configuration options available on the portal

"Build, deploy, and manage powerful websites and web apps very fast."

What do you like best?

It's very easy to scale up or down your app in Azure. You can either scale the CPU or RAM according to your needs.

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.

What do you dislike?

The debugging tools for a website are very simple.

The Analytics tool doesn't have many options, it would require to use a third party app.

Azure Interface it's a bit complex.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider Azure if you want to publish a huge website globally

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Deploy a web app it's very simple and you cant have it Online in no time.

"Azure Web Apps gets PaaS right"

What do you like best?

Take Azure web apps, and it's deployment slots for continuous deployment, couple it with SQL technologies, and add the security features from security center, and the analytics from applications insight and you got an award-winning combination that just works.

Things you might want to take a look at:

* App Service Advisor: provides insights for improving app experience on the App Service platform.

* Application Insights.

* Deployment slots.

* MySQL in-app (not intended for prod!)

And of course, do check the advanced tools for command line access.

What do you dislike?

Once again, not that I dislike it but it's more of a budget thing, if you want true security for your web exposed PaaS web application, you will want to add a WAF into the mix, however depending on usage (traffic) it can get a bit pricey.

Also, bear in mind that if you add a WAF you also get DDOS protection for free.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start with a small and budget-friendly plan and scale accordingly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A PCI compliant Cloud / PaaS based solution.

"Reliable but ever changing and can be difficult to master"

What do you like best?

Automated deployments and multiple deployment slots (staging, test, etc). Across multiple deployment slots you can select which branch should be deployed from your linked repository (we are using GitHub).

Our production server was not deployed to directly, but was swapped with the staging slot after testing of a new release was completed. This meant zero downtime, which is great for our users.

What do you dislike?

The user interface changes on what seems like a weekly basis, and it is slow in anything but Microsoft Edge. Improving performance across all modern browsers would be appreciated.

The designers at Microsoft seem to like moving items to different parts of the interface, which makes it confusing when you're trying to find something. They have been also known to change the name of things without telling you, so some items can disappear entirely until you figure out their new naming scheme.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Server reliability and ease of deployment are the key metrics for us. We are a small team and everyone wears many hats, so being able to deploy a suite of applications in one place with little effort is great.

"Cloud of the future for developers."

What do you like best?

Impressive application deployment capability, global server availability, git support, web apps, multiple programming language support, easy to use with Visual Studio, comprehensive application analytic.

What do you dislike?

Azure portal is clunky and need a lot of improvement, MySQL deployment where In-App is available but still in beta and sometimes unexpectedly slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try the free plan first, azure provides a lot of option for application development for new cloud users or even experienced developer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use azure for open-source software deployment and testing, with azure deployment from git to server much more easier and even their analytic tool provides comprehensive information for developers to analyze and improve their software.

"I love Azrure Web Apps"

What do you like best?

What I love the most is that the best feature is being able to combine multiple applications together. If you use Azure Worker Role, it requires that each app has its own servers. You can save a lot of money by switching to App Services and combining your application together!!!

What do you dislike?

From our experience it seems that Azure is very limited in terms of flexibility and if you are serious about cloud systems development and management it is more towards total headache than a usable thing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would try to make the app a little bit more user friendly, I have interns coming in a little confused on what they should be using and want a little more direction going into it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I has helped making it so much easier to deploy container-based web apps. Just pull container images from Docker Hub or a private Azure Container Registry, and Web App for Containers will deploy the containerized app with your preferred dependencies to production in seconds. The platform automatically takes care of OS patching, capacity provisioning, and load balancing.

"We use Microsoft Azure to host our web apps"

What do you like best?

The amount of services that Azure offers is excellent. If there's something that we want to do, Azure has a solution for it. All stored in the cloud so we don't have to manage our own servers. Super easy to set up a new service and test it out. The pricing is pay as you go and very affordable. Oftentimes there is a free version of the service.

What do you dislike?

With the amount of services they offer, occasionally something new will come out that will somewhat overlap with what an older service does, and it can be difficult to figure out which one to use. Rarely the documentation suffers because of the same reason.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use Microsoft Azure. It's easy and has basically everything you could need (even for non .NET developers. They support PHP and Node). The documentation for first time users is excellent and easy to follow. If doing mobile development with Xamarin, consider using Azure to host your mobile app service. There are many integrations that work pretty much right out of the box and take away much of the heavy lifting.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a startup working on an "Uber-like" model for healthcare professionals called Tempng. Being a startup means we don't have large amounts of funds. Azure pricing helps with this. We also want to be able to develop quickly and easily, without worrying about managing servers.

With Azure we can host not only our web apps, but have access to all the other features that they provide: Azure SQL DB, Azure Web Jobs, plugins such as SendGrid for sending emails, Application Insights for monitoring,

"From code to cloud in warp speed"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Azure is one of the few cloud solutions that offer a platform as a service (PaaS), giving a lot of advantages for Rappid Application Development (RAD) and deploying a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applicatioin to the cloud.

With their Software Development Kit (SDK) it's easy to develop a true cloud oriented application and the option to deploy from a Source Control Management (SCM) makes it a breeze to have your code live. In my experience it takes roughly 30 minutes from signup to full deployment, including blob storage, queues, Content Delivery Network (CDN) and search.

By now Microsoft Azure offers a rich suite of online services to facilitate all your application requirements and if it's not provided directly by Microsoft Azure, there are plenty of 3rd-party services you can integrate seemlessly into your application architecture.

What do you dislike?

It's hard not to like Microsoft Azure as they have created one of their best products ever with their cloud offering. The one thing I find a bit confusing is the new portal to manage your cloud applications as it uses shifting blades which confuses me a lot and doesn't always work. But the old management portal is still around to do the heavy lifting and the SDK to fine tune what's needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Even if you're already using other cloud solutions, give Microsoft Azure a spin. Use their Azure Web Apps to quickly deploy your web applications to the cloud. You won't regret it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're a small business where time is a luxury commodity and deploying applications to the cloud should take away the burdon of maintaining your own servers. With Microsoft Azure's PaaS offering, we only need to focus on our applications knowing Microsoft takes care of the infrastructure and platforms running our applications. This is a huge time-saver!

Also when we're building a Proof of Concept (PoC), we deploy it to Microsoft Azure to show-case it to our clients as it is that easy. Just hook your Microsoft Azure account to your repository on GitHub or Bitbucket and go! Your code is live in less than 30 minutes.

"Azure Web Apps are a solid choice"

What do you like best?

Azure Web Apps are simple to spin up and get started with.

What do you dislike?

The Azure overhead stuff, like resource groups, can be confusing until you understand what they represent.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Azure Web Apps to host several web application. It integrates well with Visual Studio and with Visual Studio Team Systems for continuous integration and deployment with each code check in/commit.

"Good overall experience with Azure"

What do you like best?

Azure is easy to setup, deploy, and manage. If you want to get up to speed quickly, especially for Sharepoint, Azure is the way to go. Setting up a web app is straightforward and it supports multiple technologies - java, .net, php. And they support wordpress which makes getting up and running even easier.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the way the transition from free to pay-as-you-go is handled. I've had to call support multiple times to resolve issues related to going from the trial or free to pay-as-you go. Documentation should be better. And the ability to create virtual private networks after setting up servers.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're building on a MS platform then Azure is a great choice. On thing to keep in mind - make sure the networking infrastructe is architected and built before building any VMs. Its impossible to add VMs to a virtual network after the VMs have been created.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working on a healthcare startup and Azure allowed us to get off the ground quickly and build on a solid platform. We were very happy with the results.

"Azure"

What do you like best?

The azure platform has so many features, which you only pay for when you use it. Microsoft is constantly evolving this wonderful product, bringing you the latest features and functionality, without you having to do anything. The auto scaling of websites is awesome.

What do you dislike?

The portal is flaky, especially when you have an item pinned to it. They do not update!

It can be hard to find some items, especially if you have not used the portal for a while. Item name changes happen and they can be moved to other locations.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Fantastic platform, regularly updated.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for scaling applications and only paying for what you need.

"Easy to setup with minimal effort"

What do you like best?

The ease of use to setup and app, upload your content and then not have to make any other changes since Azure Web Apps support all the most common web code

What do you dislike?

The only issue I have is the price structure, it is a little complicated and hard to predict how much my app will cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This can remove the need for your datacenter or server room. Anything that you need in house can now be hosted in Azure

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For a simple document store with searches we had to have a physical server in a datacentre connected to a dedicated external IP. Azure web apps has let us remove hardware and therefor cost, as well as not worry about disaster recovery anymore.

"Fantastic - ease of use and development"

What do you like best?

Integration with Visual Studio. When doing development having the tools work with you and not against you is a huge plus. With Azure and Visual Studio you can build, deploy and debug in one place and it works.

What do you dislike?

Pricing Model - Half the time I can't predict what something is going to cost. It reminds of cell phone plans, and trying to figure those out is just as hard!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're running Visual Studio I don't know of anything better for end to end development. And as Microsoft includes more open source development options I see things getting better in that direction.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Where to start - first off, not having to manage servers is a huge benefit to myself, my company and my clients. Microsoft keeps the servers up to date and I don't have to spend resources on doing service patches, hot fixes or anything else like that. Also since Azure is in such high use a problem that's found by one program, when fixed, benefits all the Azure users.

"Best place to host web apps"

What do you like best?

Azure provides features like deployment slots. Which made our deployments a lot easier with zero down time. Application Insights adds additional features by showing real-time analytics.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the azure portal is too slow and just hangs up. Though it does not have effect on the application but the portal is slow.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

zero down time for web apps.

easy to scale.

easy to configure and can be deployed in seconds.

"Great cloud provider"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Azure platform has been growing a lot over the last years. Microsoft is investing a lot on it as a key factor of his cloud business, both for internal and external products. The amount of support that you can find online is continuously growing as more people start to use and gain knowledge on the platform. What I like the most is how Microsoft is continuously pushing new features to its platform, and its fully integration with Visual Studio IDE

What do you dislike?

Some new features are still on preview, which means that they might not be available as a stable version or you might not found easily support for them.

Moreover, since there are no standards for cloud providers, you are bound to Azure really soon once you start using all his powerful features. This means that if in the future you want to run your solution in another cloud provider, you will need a lot of work. Even tough this is not an Azure-specific problem, I'd like to see a much more portability of solutions between different cloud platforms.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Review prices and features offered and planned based on your solution\application. Take in consideration also your development environment, since Azure is definitely perfectly integrated in Windows and Visual Studio

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Offering solution to customer using SaaS model, without managing all the stack typically required for on-premises solutions. Best benefit is speed and flexibility, reducing risks over your infrastructure planning, build and maintenance.

"Good, some setup complications with giving access and using it properly for out use"

What do you like best?

There is a good amount of info and people with experience so I always seemed to find a answer or someone who had tried that before me.

What do you dislike?

Maybe too many options with users and setup? I know to some people that may seem dumb and they love options.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using it for internal grouping of tools and providing one "go to" for teams in our company

"Great Interface and Ease of Use"

What do you like best?

The user interface of Azure Web Apps is great to create connections for your web application and linking your application with a database. Very intuitive and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Had some issues when setting up a database connection. Performance was just above average, but not amazing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take advantage of Azure Web Apps. If you're working with front-end management interfaces, Azure Web Services is definitely the way to go.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Created a MVC web application using Visual Studio for a financial institution. Azure Web Services was an excellent choice for us to publish our web application and connect it to an existing database.

"IAAS, PAAS and some new services introduced in Azure"

What do you like best?

I really like the way we can deploy applications so quickly with Azure. Also we can manage and provision virtual machines very easily with Azure. Microsoft Azure has integrated and brought various services like DocumentDB, EventHubs, Stream analytics , HD Insights and Application insights which provides the best insight and help.

I really like the Azure documentation for developers which even makes it easy to use.

What do you dislike?

I still expect more platform independency from Azure. Also more support for linux machines. I would also love to see SAAS in Azure. Also I think pricing is high.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want the best IAAS and PAAS service go with Azure.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To design a task scheduling problem. Deploying and managing the application with db and storage support and also gaining some insights and analytics.

"Azure, a powerful if not cumbersome prototyping tool"

What do you like best?

Can replicate, with a good deal of accuracy, most UX components in a semi-functional prototype.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve is pretty drastic and one most be pretty proficient with front-end code (HTML and CSS) to find the value in the application. Other tools (proto.io, InVision, etc) are easier to use, require no coding knowledge, and can be iterated upon more quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

More robust and powerful than other prototyping tools, you are only limited by your familiarity with the application and your coding skill. Allows UX professionals to build, in most instances, a semi-functional prototype and iterate on it without needing a dev team.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing a semi-functional prototype without having to involve development team. As UX, we can demonstrate a concept or an MVP, and tweak elements ourselves, to show to stakeholders without having to consult developers.

"Fantastic experience"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Azure out of the box supports basic needs to start a business application from ground up. It has some limitations for specific cases but with rapid enhancement releases those small constraints are covered.

What do you dislike?

Certain constraints could become annoying, but again those cases are not the mainstream cases.

Hybrid Cloud support is one of those features that was originally suffering from a constraint (only one VPN could have been established by Cloud Service).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The main challenge you would face in migration of existing applications to any Cloud vendor is to understand that you need to re-architect your application for Cloud. Old fashioned monolithic 2-tier architecture is not the right architecture for Cloud.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've migrated an entire Saas line of business to Microsoft Azure.This includes a Website, a Rest API , a slew of SOA services and multiple SQL databases. The benefits are on-demand scalibility and availability of a Saas line of product consists of multiple web clients and back-end processors. all of this is hassle free infrastructure (Paas).

I am liberated from IT constraints.

What do you like best?

Easy to deploy .Net apps, also Linux, Docker support is good.

What do you dislike?

New Portal. The UI could be better. Some of PaaS offerings should be future improved - Docker, Functions, SF.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm building and hosting enterprise apps, also hosting my home projects.

"Azure Web Apps"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of things I like about Azure Web Apps. It makes it very simple to develop and deploy apps on multiple different frameworks. The delivery is fast and perfect for testing in a SCRUM team.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike. If I had one complaint I guess it would be for it to be easier to learn.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I realized how easy it can be to make web development much faster. It's easy to use and hassle free.

The restart function need to be improved. Sometime It does not work well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives the more free time. No need to care about DDOS, network or physical issue when i used physical server to run my website.

"Azure review"

What do you like best?

I love PaaS offering from Azure the most. Moreover, Microsoft has taken the "hybrid" concept and built a great deal of Azure around hybrid concept. Microsoft Azure is right choice for Microsoft shops. Microsoft is investing a lot in bringing more and more capabilities on Azure Platform. Embracing open source, is another loving thing that I never expected Microsoft will go this far with.

What do you dislike?

Not support RHEL yet. Disk latency for non-premium storage.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"A developer Friendly Cloud with Excellent Tools"

What do you like best?

I've found Azure to be the most developer friendly cloud. It has excellent tools and makes it easy to follow "best practice" (queues, BLOB storage, continuous integration) that are hard to follow with on-premises solutions.

What do you dislike?

The Microsoft marketing team seems intent on changing the name of products every couple years.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take a bit of time to build small solutions using the different platforms (PaaS, IaaS) and kick at all the storage mechanisms, like SQL, blob, tables, etc.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing web applications, typically for internal use at medium to large enterprises.
