AZURE Web APPS: I could not find a Pricing tier(App service plan) with 8 Core and more in Dev/Test Environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a .net application which is very heavy and needs a minimum of 8 cores and 32 GB of memory(Suggested NOT TO USE B- series) and which can scale out up on requirement. I tried to create a web app App service plan  but could not find the Pricing tier with 8 core in Dev/Test environment.

    Is it advised to use Web apps for this kind of heavy application or is it better to spin up VMs(IAAS) and deploy the code?

    Any help is highly appreciated, Thanks.

  • The only option you have to run this size machine in App Service is through Web App for Containers, hosted on Windows. These use a Dv3 machine and get up to 8 cores and 32 GB.

    Other than that, we don't offer higher than 14GB memory and 4 core machines.
