Docker Comes in Blue; Azure Blue That is!
You’ve been seeing some Docker news coming from us here at Virtualization Software, so it seems fitting to add this exciting news to what has been coming. Along with the recent expansion of Microsoft into the Brazil South Region region, there has been some new work happening in the Microsoft Open Technology team.
Docker Extensions for Microsoft Azure
Microsoft has produced their Microsoft Azure Xplat-CLI for Windows which provide command line tools to manage Microsoft Azure applications. This was added to with the announcement at DockerCon in San Francisco of the new Docker extensions for Microsoft Azure.
For the Azure components, you can view the Docker extensions on the MSOpenTech GitHub here. It is encouraging to see the embracing of Docker and other open technologies by the Microsoft team, and it is a continuing sign of the strength of the open source platforms and how they are positively affecting both public and private cloud ecosystems.
If you aren’t already familiar with Docker, you should take the time to view this great Docker 101 session that was recorded to help introduce this virtualized conatainer platform.
