1. Our customer wanted to implement an architecture on Azure for a web application which maximized the use of PaaS and managed services to improve security and reliability
2. The customer needed to package and distribute the web application, in order to reliably
deploy the software in multiple environments in a repeatable and predictable way
Thanks to the use of Azure PaaS services, the platform provide excellent flexibility and the burden of patching and securing the core components is greatly reduced. The integration with Azure DevOps also guarantees traceable and reliable deployments, with the possibility of quick rollbacks in case of issues.
As for challenges, containerization through the use of Docker images can be difficult for certain types of applications and it may present some challenges which may not be obvious at first. It is important to understand all the constraints and consider them in the overall design.
