Performance S3 vs P3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a couple of S3 App services instances today in the Standard level. But recently we have been looking at the Premium instances. Is there any performance difference between S3 and P3?
    They have the same hardware setup but P3 is 3-4 times more expensive. I know premium includes some services that aren't included in standard but for the moment we don't use these.

  • Hello,

    Greetings from Microsoft Azure!

    An App Service Environment is a Premium service plan option of Azure App Service that provides a fully isolated and dedicated environment for securely running Azure App Service apps at high scale, including Web AppsMobile Apps, and API Apps.

    App Service Environments are ideal for application workloads requiring:

    • Very high scale
    • Isolation and secure network access

    Standard Service Plan:

    Designed for production API, Mobile and Web apps. There are no limits on the number of apps/domains you can host using the Standard service plan. Pricing is based on the size and number of VM instances you run. Built-in network load balancing support automatically distributes traffic across the VM instances. The Standard plan includes built-in autoscale support that can automatically adjust the number of VM instances running to match your traffic needs. It also includes built-in backup support.

    Premium Service Plan:

    Designed for production apps, the Premium plan supports larger numbers of scale instances, additional connectors and BizTalk capabilities, while still including all the advanced capabilities found in the Standard plan. The Premium plan also offers the ability to create App Service Environments (ASE) which provide full isolation and operate in the customer’s virtual network and can scale up to 50 instances (more available upon request). ASE deployments also support P4 cores. You can find more details on App Service Environments here.
