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.
Azure Spring Cloud Enterprise is a managed service for Spring that is optimized for the needs of enterprise developers. We’ve collaborated with VMware to combine the cloud platform expertise of Microsoft with the innovation of the VMware Tanzu portfolio. Azure Spring Cloud Enterprise adds commercial Tanzu components built specifically to address enterprise requirements around configuration, integration, flexibility, and support.
Microservice architectures are becoming more prevalent, and developers are building more applications on cloud platforms using containers and managed services. The Java ecosystem is complex and running Java applications in the cloud at an enterprise scale can be challenging. Our customers are asking us to help them modernize their Java applications and run them on an enterprise-grade platform—Java on Azure.
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.
Azure Spring Cloud is a fully managed service for Spring Boot apps, that lets you focus on building the apps that run your business without the hassle of managing infrastructure.
A new partnership between Microsoft and Redis Labs to bring their industry-leading technology and expertise to Azure Cache for Redis.
