What is Microsoft Azure?

Azure, called Microsoft Azure was released in 2008, and the operating system includes Linux, Android, Microsoft Windows and IOS. The major three platforms provided by Azure are Software as a Service (SAAS), Platform as a Service (PAAS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS) which support various tools, programming languages, and frameworks which allow third-party access too. It provides complete IT Infrastructure to the developer team, and they can develop and deploy applications. It has various services, and required customer support options are also present.

Azure API Apps

Azure API apps enable a great platform for the developers to develop, hosting the applications which use API’s cloud infrastructure. Creating the app provides the service, which includes a hybrid platform, and software accessibility and enables the Software as a Service platform.

Usage of Azure API Apps

  • The Azure API is designed for software developers, publishers etc., to create and manage the software application. The features present in the Azure API Apps are,
  • Software as a Service is used to manage their Application Interface Calls.
  • Various integrated services exist in Azure apps, such as Azure Logic App, Web Apps and Mobile Apps.
  • Developer can choose their desired language to create API
  • The software development kit (SDK) is generated automatically using different languages.

Features of Web apps and API apps

  1. Scaling is a feature that the users can do based on the application requirement. Auto-scaling is an option on the web, and API apps follow criteria like CPU Utilization.
  2. Users can choose the desired language, where API apps support various languages and frameworks, including ASP.NET, PHP, Python, Node.js, and .Net Core. This feature helps the user design the micro services clusters based on various technology.
  3. A greater Security is present in Azure apps, which are called Azure AD. The protocol used is the SSO protocol for user authentication.
