VM, Container, Web App which one do you choose?

In a cloud computing solution, we can host our web application into three models: virtual machine (IAAS), managed server like Web app or EBS (PAAS), or serverless like ECS or Azure Container. So, which one do you choose?

The VM

  • If you do not want to spend time to migrate the VM is for you
  • If you need to communicate with the operating system service, the VM is for you
  • If you cannot find the managed server solution / like legacy application with specific framework the VM is for you.

The Web App

  • If you build the solution with the supported technology (current web app)
  • If you don't want to control the host OS
  • If you want the great scalability without additional configuration

The Container.

  • If you want to build microservices architecture rather than monolithic
  • If you need a performance
  • If you want agnostic with a platform

You can see how easy to deploy this kind of publish setting in Azure with the Visual Studio
