Console app execution on Azure

AmaraCode LLC 261 Reputation points

I'm unsure which Azure service to utilize. I have a simple .Net Core console app that runs with a command line parameter. I need this app to execute every hour. It is just collecting some data on the web and adding to my storage which I already know how to do. I don't want to have to pay for a VM since this little app will only run for a few seconds at most at the top of each hour.

Is this a candidate for Azure Function or is there another Azure service that better suits my needs?

Thanks in advance.

    This is a very good use case for an Azure Function. You will only get charged for the time the function runs (remember to use Consumption Plan). And since your functionality needs to run every hour, you can use a Timer Trigger for your function.
