Decision tree for selecting the best cloud hosting option (App service, VM, Containers, Serverless)

While working on a project last year, we were looking at various options for our Microservices hosting strategy. My colleague came across this decision workflow from Microsoft for their Azure hosting service options and I thought of sharing it here.

This decision workflow can help in the following scenarios (and others):

  • Hosting options for new build vs migration
  • Overall cloud migration strategy
  • Web & API hosting options
  • IaaS vs PaaS vs serverless
  • Microservices deployment and scaling strategy
Feel free to comment on ways in which this may have helped you.

  1. thue hosting I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post.

  2. The way you have put things here is very easy to understand. Nowadays business owners understand need and benefits of IT services and technologies. It is a favor for business. The only thing is that offered services must be world class solutions and consistent high-end performance. only then it will be cost effective and will give good result and enhanced productivity. The managed IT services in Brisbane, I hired are also effective and I am a keen learner now and seek about latest technology to stay updated. Thanks for such a helpful post.
