How things change! Microsoft is porting SQL Server to Red Hat’s Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). And now, Red Hat will support Microsoft’s open-source .NET Core 2.0 on RHEL, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, and other Red Hat platforms. It’s no wonder Bill Gates only owns 1.3 percent of Microsoft these days.
Microsoft’s .NET Core is a lightweight and modular platform for creating web applications and micro-services. It enables developers to create .NET applications across platforms and deploy across Red Hat’s operating systems and clouds.
This new Microsoft programming framework was released on Aug. 14. .NET Core is the open-source cross-platform implementation of the .NET development platform that runs on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
The latest version of .NET Core supports .NET Standard 2.0. This provides enhanced platform compatibility and portability across all .NET runtimes and workloads. It also streamlines application packaging with easier access to ASP.NET 2.0 and EF Core 2.0.
