Why Monitor Azure App Service?

The Azure App Service is a secure, versatile platform that:

  • Supports multiple languages and frameworks;

  • Supports dockerized apps;

  • Enables continuous integration and deployment with Azure DevOps, GitHub, BitBucket, Docker Hub, or Azure Container Registry;

  • Is compliant with modern security standards such as ISO, SOC, and PCI;

  • Allows easy connections to SaaS platforms and on-premises data

These are some reasons why the Azure App Service is a sought-after platform for business-critical, modern, cloud-based, cross-domain applications. Any issue impacting the delivery of the service - eg., the unavailability of the Azure cloud that hosts the service - can therefore impact the accessibility of these applications, and may consequently impede the smooth transaction of business. On the other hand, if these applications are accessible, but their performance is sub-par, then not only will the business suffer serious losses, the credibility of the service itself will come under the scanner! To avoid this, it is important to monitor the service, the cloud infra hosting the service, and the applications deployed on it.
