As 2018 comes to an end, I look at the technology landscape. I look at the kinds of hybrid scenarios our customers are developing. For example, we see Airbus transforming aerospace with Microsoft Azure Stack and I realize that this year has been amazing for developers that design, develop, and maintain cloud-based apps.
We’re excited to see everyone at Kubecon this week! We’ve been working with our customers to understand how they’re thinking about Kubernetes and what we can do to make it easier for them.
As of today, Azure is present in 54 regions, several sovereign clouds, as well as in our customers’ data centers through Azure Stack. Consistency is a fundamental pillar of Azure, no matter which region you are deploying your application to, the way you write your scripts and templates is the same.
More and more we hear from our customers that building hybrid applications is necessary for their business. While Microsoft Azure continues to be the platform of choice for building applications, Azure Stack and Azure together enable building hybrid applications.
