How Can Azure App Services Minimize Infrastructure Overhead?
Azure App Services is an Azure cloud-native solution that allows developers to build, deploy and scale web applications, mobile applications, mobile back-ends, RESTful APIs, and other services without the need to configure the infrastructure to support the development environment. This type of infrastructure-free environment is known as a Serverless Application environment built on container technology.
The basic concept in serverless architecture or container architecture is to provide a pool of resources applications have access to such that the developer cna consume only the resources that are needed and don't have to worry about over or under provisioning resources for the server that will house the application. Now, with Azure App Services, developers can build, deploy and scale applications on the fly, without ever worrying about reprovisioning development servers in doing so.
