Possible usage PaaS- (instead of IaaS / VM) to run UCD Application server

Currently we are using Azure Iaas for UCD Infrastructure as below

  • Azure Linux VM (IaaS) with RHEL7 for License server and RHEL for UCD server.

  • Azure Storage account to store shared files (appdata) which is mounted to VM

  • Azure MS SQL as database

  • We are also using External Nexus Repository for storing artifacts

If UCD can support PaaS (like Web App) for hosting the UCD then we do not need to worry about the infrastructure on which UCD app is hosted.

Currently we do have filesystem on remote filesystem and VM is only to run the binaries, so the question is if VM is really required or we can use any other environment which will provide to "host" the website.

    Thank you for this IDEA. This is a use case we currently do not support but it is something we are looking into for a future offering. It is a good idea and we will share this request with our internal team.
