I recently implemented a project for one of our customers. They had selected a supplier for their new global food delivery webshop. The web shop was based on PHP 7.0+, Cake PHP and MySQL.
Since we are managing our customer’s Azure subscription we were asked to take care of the web shop hosting. They required a scalable solution and since it was a food delivery webshop, they required different performance levels depending on the time of the day (many people order food on Sunday evening ;)).
An Azure App Service covers such requirements quite well, so we decided to go this route.
