Cloud Service Vs App service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts

    I would like to understand the use custom cloud service .

    I was going through https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cloud-services/cloud-services-dotnet-get-started

    where a ASP.NEt web application has been developed and deployed under cloud service by choosing web & worker role.

    What is purpose of Web Role if we have App service which I think also ready cloud service in azure ?

    I mean , I can deploy asp.net web app in Azure App service so what is benefit of web role cloud service ?

    Could some advise please. Thanks.

  • Azure Cloud Services is a traditional PaaS offering that provided more flexibility/control over the VMs hosting your web apps in comparison with App Service. 

    However, Azure Cloud services is based on the legacy "classic" deployment model - so, you might want to avoid it for new deployments. Besides, App Service is considerably easier to deploy and manage - so unless you have a compelling reason not to use it, that would likely be a better choice
