Azure Difference Between Scheduler And Web Job
Here We Will Describe Azure Difference Between Scheduler And Web Job
The actual scheduling bits of WebJobs are built on top of the scheduler. When you set up a Web Job on a schedule under the hood it uses the scheduler to kick it off. WebJobs provides a nice little location to host the code that gets executed. In fact, if you create WebJobs for a web site look in the Scheduler on the portal and you'll see them listed there as well.
Also note that the scheduler could call out to other systems not running Azure. If you have something running in a Cloud Service that needs to be called regularly, or even if something was hosted elsewhere (another provider or on premises) the scheduler is where you can set that up.
Regarding the cost aspect, there is a free tier to the scheduler as well: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/details/scheduler/.
