    Not necessarily.

    The general architecture would be:

    • Your app (presumably) talks to your web service to get data
    • You set up push notifications on your server - this can be on Azure, App Center or Firebase (note that I think Azure and App Center use Firebase internally)
    • You send the app a push notification - by calling the appropriate Push Notification server API from your back end.
    • The app receives the push notification, and decides what to do with it. One action may be to check for the new data which the Notification has informed the app of - so the app just calls the appropriate endpoint on your Web Service.

    So the point from above is that your Web Service doesn't need to be on the same server as the Push Notification server.
