Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Microsoft Azure App Service.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
Initially, there were some rare instances when the server went down because it was deployed on Linux. There are some features that are not available on the Linux-based deployment, yet are available on Windows. This is something that I think Microsoft has now caught up.
The network side needs improvement. It has to be more stable. Sometimes we have issues with the network side when we expand the solution. You need to find stability in order to expand the solution properly. When we do that, or we add another app service through the app service plan, we have issues with the network, and we lose communication between our data center and the app service. The solution needs better integration capabilities on the network side. There should be more options, for example, to update the DNS server, straight to the app service.
There has been some building of pipelines where we've had to test and redesign a little so if there were maybe some easier to setup guides or more template data flows that would be an improvement. It would simplify the center processes. It would probably be impossible to have a template for everyone, but maybe there's some way to kind of simplify the initial stack and point frame for new users like ourselves, to make getting off the ground a little bit easier.
It's too early to really say what features are lacking at this point. I am new to the intervention and I find it difficult to find my way around the user interface. I have my own learning tool. However, it could be simpler for new users. The pricing could be a bit less.
The cost of the solution needs improvement.
I would like to see faster adoption and maybe they can give you some templates, so that we can deploy something and then modify the template. For instance, having templates for creating a website will make things faster and easier.
It is not unsual that we run into problems related to the deployment and post-installation. But Azure team is aware of these issues and continuously keeps improving the Azure stack.
