What is azure web role?

Microsoft Azure

I am a bit confused on what is a Azure Web role? What difference does it makes if we don't have such a concept? Can't azure cloud services function without it?



A Web Role is one of the Cloud Service roles in Azure. It can be configured and customized to run web applications that are built with different programming languages. Azure has two types of Cloud Service roles - web and worker roles. 

A web role deploys and hosts your app through IIS automatically. While a worker role does not use IIS and runs your app in a standalone mode.
