Overview

Microsoft Azure Web Apps provide an affordable but well scalable hosting option for Web sites. Through the Microsoft Azure Portal, environments can be set up very quickly and easily, preconfigured with numerous Web frameworks (e.g., ASP.NET, Java, PHP, Node.js) and applications (e.g., Joomla, WordPress, Drupal), and loaded with Web applications from various development platforms. Deployment options such as Git, FTP, WebDeploy, and TFS Deploy are supported. Support is also provided for automated deployment directly from source code management systems (including Git, Visual Studio Online, Dropbox, SkyDrive, etc.). A new deployment (that can be reverted on the portal) is performed automatically once a developer sets new code, so that a Web site always uses the latest source code.

Several operating modes are available for executing Web Apps: from a free "Shared" model, up to "Standard" and "Premium" models that offer Backup and Restore, Auto-Scaling, WebJobs, Scheduler support, and staged publishing through a staging environment.
