Preview of Service Fabric on Linux
Posted on 23 June 2016
At Build 2016, we announced a limited preview of Azure Service Fabric on Linux, which you can use to build, deploy, and manage cloud applications by using the same core technology that Microsoft has used to build massively scalable solutions on Windows. With this preview, you can create Reliable Actors and stateless Reliable Services in Java on top of our runtime. Developers can build apps by using the tools with which they're familiar, including Yeoman scaffolding, Gradle builds, and Vagrant-based setup. The SDK and runtime also provide support for containers and guest executables, as well as the ability to create and deploy apps to a cluster on Azure or your development computer.
Please feel free to sign up for our preview and try things out.
If you want to know more, this blog discusses how we got the product running on Linux, some of the forks we had to take, and how we made those decisions.
