Open Source at Microsoft
Today, one out of four Azure virtual machines are Linux and the Azure Marketplace has more than 1,000 Linux images. Azure also provides support for Java, Node.js, Python, Ruby, and PHP. We support the Hadoop ecosystem and offer Azure HDInsight, a 100% Apache Hadoop-based cloud service that can deploy to Windows and Linux. And with an open, RESTful API for every component, we are lighting up new scenarios, like Internet of Things (IoT) integration or Docker containers. In this session we will show that Linux and other Open Source Solutions are first-class citizens on Microsoft Azure. You will learn how to build IaaS solutions at hyper scale for your Linux computing needs. We will talk about Microsoft partnership with Red Hat and walk through the process of configuring, deploying and running Open Source solutions on Azure.
