Azure Web Apps run in a sandboxed environment that allows multiple sites to safely co-exist on the same machine.
In most cases, sites are able to do most things that 'normal' web sites typically need to do. But in some scenario, you may run into something that doesn't work due to sandbox limitations. See Azure Web-App Sandbox for more details.
