Azure App Service vs Azure Container Service: What are the differences?

What is Azure App Service? Build, deploy, and scale web apps on a fully managed platform. Quickly build, deploy, and scale web apps created with popular frameworks .NET, .NET Core, Node.js, Java, PHP, Ruby, or Python, in containers or running on any operating system. Meet rigorous, enterprise-grade performance, security, and compliance requirements by using the fully managed platform for your operational and monitoring tasks.

What is Azure Container Service? Deploy and manage containers using the tools you choose. Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, the number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools, and Container Service handles everything else.

Azure App Service and Azure Container Service are primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" and "Containers as a Service" tools respectively.
