Azure Search vs Netlify: What are the differences?

Developers describe Azure Search as "Search-as-a-service for web and mobile app development". Azure Search makes it easy to add powerful and sophisticated search capabilities to your website or application. Quickly and easily tune search results and construct rich, fine-tuned ranking models to tie search results to business goals. Reliable throughput and storage provide fast search indexing and querying to support time-sensitive search scenarios. On the other hand, Netlify is detailed as "Build, deploy and host your static site or app with a drag and drop interface and automatic delpoys from GitHub or Bitbucket". Netlify is smart enough to process your site and make sure all assets gets optimized and served with perfect caching-headers from a cookie-less domain. We make sure your HTML is served straight from our CDN edge nodes without any round-trip to our backend servers and are the only ones to give you instant cache invalidation when you push a new deploy. Netlify is also the only static hosting service with integrated continuous deployment.

Azure Search and Netlify are primarily classified as "Search as a Service" and "Static Web Hosting" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Azure Search are:

  • Powerful, reliable performance
  • Easily tune search indices to meet business goals
  • Scale out simply

On the other hand, Netlify provides the following key features:

  • Global Network
  • Global Network
  • Instant Cache Validation

"Easy to set up" is the primary reason why developers consider Azure Search over the competitors, whereas "Fastest static hosting and continuous deployments" was stated as the key factor in picking Netlify.

Chose
to add
Netlify
and to remove
GitHub Pages
at

We use Netlify to host static websites.

The reasons for choosing Netlify over GitHub Pages are as follows:

  • Netfily can bind multiple domain names, while GitHub Pages can only bind one domain name
  • With Netfily, the original repository can be private, while GitHub Pages free tier requires the original repository to be public

In addition, in order to use CDN, we use Netlify DNS.
