Azure Web Apps is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering that is optimized for hosting Web sites and Web applications. It makes deployment extraordinarily easy – and not just apps built using the Microsoft stack. You can deploy PHP apps that use MySQL just as easily as ASP.NET apps that use SQL Server. You can select from a wide variety of Web App templates or build templates of your own. You can configure Web Apps to auto-scale as traffic increases to ensure that your customers aren’t left waiting during periods of peak demand. You can publish apps to pre-production staging locations and test them in the cloud before taking them live, and then swap staging deployments for production deployments with the click of a button. Take a deep dive into Azure Web Apps and see why it's the perfect solution for Web apps large and small.
