Microsoft and Red Hat double down on digital transformation

Share

Microsoft and Red Hat are expanding the parameters of a relationship first struck in 2015, bringing Microsoft Azure and SQL Server closer to Red Hat's container orchestration product as the former rivals continue to make peace in the cloud.

In addition to these two announcements, Red Hat also today said that it is in the process of certifying Microsoft's SQL Server for Linux on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenShift.

Microsoft's long enmity towards Linux means deals like this can still feel a little unreal.

The boys' parents had managed to escape from the building earlier, and proceeded to raise the alarm about their children. A damaged house is seen after an natural disaster hit the island of Ischia, off the coast of Naples, Italy.

Similar logic works for Red Hat, which knows as well as anyone that developers and the organisations that hire them almost always enjoy having cross-platform options because it means they're less likely to find themselves stuffed into silos. Currently, both Microsoft and Red Hat staffers are working on optimizing to run OpenShift on the Azure cloud computing platform and establishing integrated support mechanisms.

On Aug. 22, the companies announced that Red Hat OpenShift, an enterprise container application platform that includes Kubernetes container management, will natively support Windows Server containers. We think we'll therefore call it "Redmond Hat".

With today's announcement, it is planned for availability on Azure, Microsoft's enterprise-grade cloud platform with availability announced across 42 regions globally - more than any other public cloud provider. In the coming months, Microsoft and Red Hat plan to provide Red Hat On-Demand - "pay-as-you-go" Red Hat Enterprise Linux images available in the Azure Marketplace, supported by Red Hat. Red Hat CloudForms will interoperate with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager, offering Red Hat CloudForms customers the ability to manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux on both Hyper-V and Microsoft Azure. Azure Stack allows organizations to easily run their cloud service from their own datacenter.
