What is Azure Cloud Service?

0 votes

I started learning azure a couple of months ago. I came across Azure cloud services and found its usage and functionality similar to that of Azure App Services. When we already have Azure App Services that works flawlessly for the same objective, what else does Azure Cloud Services do that Azure App Service doesn't? 

What exactly is the Azure Cloud Services for?

Azure Cloud Services is an example of a platform as a service (PaaS). 

Like Azure App Service, this technology is designed to support applications that are scalable, reliable, and inexpensive to operate. In the same way that App Service is hosted on virtual machines (VMs), so too is Azure Cloud Services. 

However, you have more control over the VMs. You can install your own software on VMs that use Azure Cloud Services, and you can access them remotely.

In Azure Cloud Services, you’ll get many of the features of App Service, like support for multiple deployment, automatic OS upgrades, and seamless platform switching. But in addition, you’ll also get Remote Desktop (RDP) access to servers, custom MSI installations, the ability to define and execute start-up tasks, and to listen to Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) events.

Hope this helps!
