Jason Haley: Azure Cloud Services vs. (Web) App Services


Azure has two popular choices for hosting web applications in a platform as a service model: Cloud Services and Web Apps.

In this talk I will give a quick introduction of Cloud Services and Web Apps, then dive into the Pros and Cons of the two approaches by focusing on three scenarios:

1. Simple web site/application

2. Web application with backend processing

3. Web application(s) with multiple backend processing and DMZ

This presentation is designed to help you understand which choice is best for your situation.
