What is Azure?
Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy, and manage applications through our global network of datacenters. With Azure, you get the freedom to build and deploy wherever you want, using the tools, applications, and frameworks of your choice.
- Microsoft first announced its Red Hat partnership back in November 2015. And it’s been slowly rolling out the Azure Container Service, in partnership with hot startups Docker and Mesosphere, since last year, too.
- The Azure Container Service, which lets developers build application using the very hot technology of software containers, is now in public preview.
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux, a version of the Linux operating system designed for use in business servers and data centers, is now available for purchase from the Microsoft Azure marketplace.
Windows Azure supports a large and growing number of open-source applications, frameworks, and languages.
