Azure App Service vs. Azure Container App Service

Azure App Service vs Azure Container App Service

What is Azure App Service? 

Azure App Service is a cloud-based website hosting platform built and operated by Microsoft. It’s a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that allows you to publish web applications running on popular frameworks such as .NET, .NET Core, Node.js, Java, PHP, Ruby, and Python. 

Payoda utilizes the app to host web apps, REST APIs, Logic Apps, and backend services for mobile apps.

What are Azure Container Apps? 

Azure container app streamlines the configuration of popular open-source tools and technologies. You get a portable solution for both your containers and application configuration.

You choose the number of hosts, size, and choice of orchestrator tools, and the container app service handles the rest.

While deploying the application, a new revision is created. Revisions allow you to run the old and new versions simultaneously and use the traffic splitting feature to direct traffic to be old or new versions.
