Add a variety of essential app services including authentication, social integration, offline data sync, and more, regardless of whether your app runs on Windows 10, iOS, or Android. Set up continuous integration and deployment workflows with VSO, GitHub, TeamCity, Hudson, or BitBucket—enabling you to automatically build, test, and deploy your web app on each successful code check-in or integration test.
  • Azure Functions. Write simple, serverless functions in the programming language of your choice to run code on demand without worrying about infrastructure.
  • Notification Hubs. Keep your app in-touch with users by enabling you to send mobile push notifications tailored by audience, language, and location using any back end and major mobile platforms.
  • MySQL database from MySQL in-app. This gives you the experience of native MySQL support for your Web Apps. Deploy CMS solutions such as WordPress, Joomla, and more, or custom applications driven by MySQL database.
  • Application Insights. Provides you with the deep diagnostics and performance telemetry to ensure your web apps and services are running at their maximum potential. Search and analyze your data to continuously improve your application, prioritize future investments, and improve the overall customer experience.
  • Azure DevOps. Provides a set of cloud-powered collaboration tools that work with your existing IDE or editor, so your team can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes.
