Microsoft's Windows Azure Cloud Platform Will Be Able To Run On Linux Servers

Microsoft's Windows Azure Cloud Platform Will Be Able To Run On Linux Servers.

As per the report published by Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley cited several sources who said customers of Microsoft's Windows Azure cloud platform will be able to run on Linux servers from the starting of this June or July (not confirmed).

Microsoft will also allow customers to host SQL Server & SharePoint Server on Azure, Marry Jo Foley said.

The company will enable this by leasing customers make virtual machines (VMs) on Azure. Until now, Microsoft has declined customer requests to offer VMs on Azure, instead of trying to convince them to build their own applications onto the cloud service.

Adding Linux to Azure would be a massive step. Microsoft and SuSE inked a alliance over five years ago to support SuSE Linux, and more recently Microsoft hooked up with Red Hat to support Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Microsoft last month announced extended open source support for Azure with the release of a CTP of Hadoop on Azure, a software development kit (SDK) for Node.js and a new JavaScript plug-in for developers using tooling based on Eclipse.

The CTP is scheduled for release this spring. It is uncertain when Microsoft hopes to commercially roll out the tenacity capability. 

Many customers are still waiting for the release of Microsoft's VM Role, which is in beta and will let users run a custom Windows Server 2008 R2 image on Azure.
