Microsoft adds limited support for Linux on Azure cloud

Microsoft has done the previously unthinkable and said it will now provide “limited support for major Linux distributions, third-party and open-source technologies” on its Azure cloud.

To get the ball rolling, Microsoft will support what it describes as the most popular Linux distros as of July 15.

Microsoft officially says its support will be “limited” and it’s a pretty apt description, given that it consists of “Help with installation and configuration of Supported Linux Distributions on the Azure platform and services” and “Recommendations applicable to the Azure platform and services” that pertain to performance and networking issues.
