Unleash Spring apps in a flex environment with Azure Spring Apps Consumption and Dedicated plans

Engineering | Josh Long | May 23, 2023 | ...

In March, we introduced the Consumption pricing plan for Azure Spring Apps allowing you to start from zero and scale to zero vCPU. Today, we are thrilled to announce the public preview of the Standard Dedicated plan! The Standard Dedicated plan provides a fully managed, dedicated environment for running Spring applications on Azure. This plan offers you customizable compute options (including memory-optimized), single tenancy, and high availability to help you achieve price predictability, cost savings, and performance for running Spring applications at scale.

In 2019, Microsoft and Pivotal (now VMware) announced Azure Spring Apps, a fully managed service for Spring apps. We set out to solve many of the common challenges enterprise developers face when running Spring apps at scale. The service manages dynamic scaling, security patching, out-of-the-box instrumentation for monitoring, and more so developers can focus on their apps. Since then, we’ve worked with many customers including Bosch, Digital Realty, FedEx, Kroger, Liantis, Morgan Stanley, National Life, Raley's, and Swiss Re
