Welcome to Microsoft Ignite. I’m thrilled to share how Microsoft is empowering you to innovate with cloud-native and open source on Azure. The growth of Kubernetes and cloud-native applications in Azure and the broader technology has been nothing short of humbling and awe-inspiring. Open innovation is at the heart of nearly every innovation in cloud computing. The cloud-native ecosystem empowers people to build applications that make it easy to take advantage of this innovation.
Recent incidents from ransomware to supply chain compromises have shown both the interconnectedness of our digital world and the critical need to secure these digital assets from attackers, criminals, and other hostile third parties. To achieve this, our customers need Zero Trust security and least privilege access for users and resources.
The ability to run Kubernetes anywhere, whether in the cloud or on-premises, has been a high priority for Azure customers looking to rapidly innovate, with increasing customer focus on the benefits of container-optimized workloads and operating systems, lean application modernization, easier operations, and platform resiliency. To support this rapid evolution, we’re announcing that Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire Kinvolk.
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.
Today, we're excited to tell you about even more capabilities that can help you along on your cloud native journey to Kubernetes on Azure.
HashiCorp Consul Service (HCS) on Azure enables Azure users to natively provision Consul servers in any supported Azure region directly through the Azure Marketplace.
Announcing the general availability of Windows Server container support on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
With each passing year, more and more developers are building cloud-native applications. As developers build more and more complex applications they are looking to innovators like Azure and HashiCorp to reduce the complexity of building and operating these applications. HashiCorp and Azure have worked together on a myriad of innovations.
Enterprises can now use OpenShift for their most critical production workloads and know that both Red Hat and Microsoft are standing behind the service to ensure your success.
