What is Azure Functions Premium plan?
Ashok Nalam
Once the Azure functions are developed and deployed to azure, then you pay per use pricing model. Azure function has below hosting plans
  1. Dedicated app service plan
  2. Consumption plan
  3. Premium plan (called as elastic premium plan)
Azure functions Premium plan is a higher plan compared to other 2 plans. It contains following features
  • VNET Integration- To add more security to your app, you can configure a VNET and add your function app. With this, your function app is secured with service endpoints. VNET integration is not available in other plans.
  • Pre-warmed instances to avoid cold start - In consumption plan, if there are no execution/calls to your function app it scales in to Zero instances. Once it goes to zero instances, if we make any function call, it takes some time(called as cold start time) to respond to the first call (from zero to one). This latency can be avoided in Premium plan with pre-warmed instances.
  • Unlimited execution duration - Consumption plan has a 10 minutes limit whereas Premium plan defaults to 30 minutes but you can modify it to unlimited(60 minutes guaranteed). Use functiontTimeout property in host.json file to change the configuration.
  • Premium hardware - Provides best cores(1, 2 and 4), memory and storage.
  • Multiple function apps can be deployed to the same plan and all function apps in premium plan shares pre-warmed active instances.
  • Automatic Scaling - Like consumption plan, your app will scale in or scale out based on the need.
Note: Premium plan is charged based on the number of  core seconds, memory used and configured pre-warmed instances.

How do I deploy a function app in Azure?
Ashok Nalam
Once the Azure functions are developed and there are different ways you can deploy your app to Azure. The different deployment methods are
  1. Tool based deployments - deployments are managed locally. Useful when you are doing local development and requires multiple ad-hoc deployments manually.
    • Visual Studio Code publish
    • Visual Studio publish
    • Core tools deployments (using Zip deploy or docker container)
  2. App Service Deployment - deployments are managed from the Azure App Service under Deployment section. Useful when you want to deploy as part of source control commits or from a container registry.
    • Deployment center - Continuous deployment using Azure Repos, GitHub, Bitbucket and Local Git or Manual deployment using One drive, Dropbox, External Git and FTP.
    • Container deployments
  3. External Pipelines - deployment are managed by pipelines. Useful for Production scenarios where you want to do some additional validations as part CI/CD.
