Custom Web-Application Development with Azure PaaS

Custom Web-Application Development with Azure PaaS

PaaS allows IT to focus most of its sparse resources on the organization’s applications and data, while off-loading the maintenance and support to the cloud.

PaaS is a service providing remote utilization of an application development platform utilizing cloud computing. This includes not only the remote use of software (Software-as-a-Service) but a complete application development and distribution platform. This platform technique streamlines development by eliminating the need to customize the code to run on different platforms, thus avoiding the need to distribute updates.

Why PaaS?

PaaS technology allows developers to develop, test and deploy their software in one comprehensive environment. Distribution takes place on the same platform on which it is developed, avoiding software and hardware conflicts for clients. Also, this single platform environment frees the developer from the need to tailor their applications to work on various OS and hardware.


Azure is Microsoft’s Cloud Computing offering for developers to build and deploy applications on pay-per-use basis. It is a comprehensively managed hosted platform for running applications and services.

Windows Azure provides a scalable infrastructure for customer to run their web services and applications, it is a platform as a service (PaaS) solution for building and hosting solutions using Microsoft’s products and in their data centers.

A comprehensive suite of cloud products that allow users to create enterprise-class applications without having to build their own infrastructure. Additionally, the suite helps develop a wide variety of modern applications for Android, iOS, and Windows that take full advantage of the cloud. This includes web, mobile, media and line-of-business solutions, automatic scale-up and scale-down in-order to meet any need, provide services to gain insights from your data and manage identity and access.

Custom On-Premise Web-Applications Development Using ASP .Net, C#

A software delivery model that is installed and operated from a customer's in-house server and computing infrastructure is an on- premise development, which is also termed as a “shrink wrap”.


ASP.NET is a programming framework used to create enterprise-class web sites, web applications, and technologies that is simple, easy to maintain, language independent server side technology. ASP.NET developed applications are accessible on a global basis leading to efficient information management. It drastically reduces the amount of code required to build large applications and provides safe and secured application with built-in Windows authentication and per-application configuration. It provides better performance by taking advantage of early binding, just-in-time compilation, native optimization, and caching services right out of the box.

Why C#?

C# is an elegant, simple, type-safe, object-oriented language that allows enterprise programmers to build a breadth of applications. It also gives you the capability to build durable system-level components and also interoperate with other languages, across platforms, with legacy data.
