Last year, we announced our strategic partnership with Grafana Labs to develop a Microsoft Azure managed service that lets customers run Grafana natively within the Azure cloud platform. Today, we are announcing that Azure Managed Grafana is available in preview. With Azure Managed Grafana, the Grafana dashboards our customers are familiar with are now integrated seamlessly with the services and security of Azure.
When we launched Azure Spring Cloud with VMware in 2019, we set out to solve common challenges developers, IT operators, and DevOps teams face when running Spring Boot applications at scale. We are thankful to the many customers and partners who participated in the private preview and shared their learnings, and we are excited to announce that Azure Spring Cloud Enterprise is now available in public preview.
Seamlessly ship Microsoft Azure Spring Cloud data into Elastic and monitor every step of your cloud journey. Gain a holistic view across Spring Boot applications and other data sets in your cloud and on-premises environments.
Today, we are announcing the preview of Azure Load Testing, a fully managed Azure service that enables developers and testers to generate high-scale load with custom Apache JMeter scripts and gain actionable insights to catch and fix performance bottlenecks at scale.
The continuous monitoring of health metrics is a fundamental part of this process, and this is where AIOps plays a critical role. In the post that follows, we introduce how AI and machine learning are used to empower DevOps engineers, monitor the Azure deployment process at scale, detect issues early, and make rollout or rollback decisions based on impact scope and severity.
Over the past two years, customer feedback has made it clear that when data barriers are dissolved the impact of analytics grows exponentially. Today, we’re announcing the next step in bringing data insights to all by eliminating the barrier between business applications and analytical systems with Azure Synapse Link for Microsoft Dataverse.
Customers around the world take advantage of Microsoft Azure to build, deploy, and manage business-critical applications at scale. We continuously innovate to help customers simplify their app deployment and management experience so they can spend more time building great solutions. Today, we are announcing several additional Azure infrastructure capabilities to help achieve this goal.
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.
It is Microsoft's mission to empower the next generation of developers with world-class tools and cloud services that allow them to build the applications of the future. These applications of the future will be intelligent, infused with AI to provide advanced insights. They will incorporate open source technology and libraries from across the globe. They will be reliable under load and secure by design. And they will be built with tools that allow developers to move from idea to code to cloud, seamlessly.
Our commitment to developers is to make Azure the best cloud for developing intelligent applications that harness the power of data and AI. At Microsoft Build, we are announcing several exciting new capabilities and offers that make it easy and cost-effective for developers to get started with Azure data and AI services.
