We are committed to open source at Microsoft. We contribute to Linux, Kubernetes, Visual Studio Code, and serving in open source organizations like the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) or Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF). At Microsoft Build, we are sharing our latest work to enable developers to develop flexibly and innovate quickly on Azure.
There are some use cases of serverless that need to be stateful—such as long-running workflows, human approved processes, and e-commerce shopping cart applications. Durable Functions, an extension to the Azure Functions runtime that brings stateful and orchestration capabilities to serverless functions. Durable Functions stands alone in the serverless space, providing stateful functions and a way to define serverless workflows programmatically.
As developers, we are the builders of our era, creating the ideas and writing the code that helps organizations digitally transform. We pioneer innovation that disrupts countless industries and help businesses endure tough times.
Customers are undergoing rapid transformations to stay competitive in an increasingly digital world with cloud design patterns and event streaming playing critical roles in their success.
Digital transformation is accelerating at an incredible rate for consumers and employees alike, and the way we live and work has drastically changed.
Coinciding with this week’s Kubecon and Open Azure Day virtual events, today we’re announcing the general availability of Azure Hybrid Benefit functionality for Linux customers, allowing you to bring both your on-premises Windows Server and SQL Server licenses, as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) subscriptions to Azure.
Welcome to KubeCon North America. It seems only yesterday that we were together in San Diego. Though we’re farther apart physically this year, the Kubernetes community continues to go strong.
The Linux and open-source landscapes are changing rapidly. With so many companies embracing remote work and operations this year, we’re seeing more organizations running large-scale, mission-critical Linux and open-source workloads than ever before. IT teams need technical resources that can keep up—now. Even organizations that had already begun moving to the cloud are now finding that they need to accelerate and expand their cloud adoption.
In May, we announced a groundbreaking partnership with Redis Labs to bring their Redis Enterprise software to Azure as a part of Azure Cache for Redis. We were humbled by the level of excitement and interest we received. We are announcing that you can now use Redis to tackle new challenges while making your caches larger and more resilient than ever before.
Microsoft Azure is a key enabler of the digital transformation journey of our customers today. Customers are using Azure to spur business innovation and realizing how running in Azure makes them more resilient, more agile, and more efficient.
