Azure started as a Platform as a Service with Cloud Services, but since it launched has evolved to include several newer and very useful options for compute. Depending on your hosting model and how you do DevOps, requirements for scalability and availability you have tradeoffs that affect your long term costs and decision. This talk will go through the options for compute in Azure including the classic Cloud Services, Service Fabric, Application Services, Functions, Web Jobs, Functions and Virtual Machines. It will help you understand the tradeoffs and help you make smart decisions on what makes the most sense to ensure you can maximize the return on your investment.

You will learn:

  • How to get started with each
  • What tradeoffs are made that affect why you would choose each
