Anbei ein gute Quelle die einen die Vorteilung und Nachteile gegenüberstellt.

In der Cloud Variante ist die Entwicklung nur die sogenannten Extensions (Visual Studio Code + und AL-Programmiercode) gestattet.

Hiermit bleibt aber die Update-Konformität erhalten. Wie diese Tabelle zeigt hat das Vor- aber auch Nachteile.
