If you don’t know about Azure Functions, I’ll tell you here how they can make development more productive and how they are a great solution for running small pieces of code, or functions, in the cloud. They allow you to write just the code you need for the problem at hand without worrying about a whole application or infrastructure to run it.
Azure Functions lets you develop serverless applications on Azure. The key features of Azure Functions are:
Functions are a great solution for processing data, integrating systems, working with Internet of Things and building simple APIs and microservices. Consider Functions for tasks like image or order processing, file maintenance or any task that you want to run on a schedule.
Functions provide templates to get you started with key scenarios including:
Azure Functions supports triggers, which are ways to start execution of your code, and bindings, which are ways to simplify coding for input and output data.
There are 2 pricing plans available:
1. Consumption Plan – When your Function runs, Azure provides all the necessary computational resources, so you don’t have to worry about resource management and you only pay for the time that your code runs.
2. App Service Plan – You run your Functions like your web apps. When you’re already using the App Service for other apps, you can run your Functions on the same plan at no additional cost.
If you have more questions around Azure Functions or anything Azure related, you’re in the right place. Click the link below or contact us—our Azure experts are here to help, where ever you are on your Azure journey.
