Open source plays a critical role in your application development and modernization. At Microsoft, we are taking cloud architecture to the next level and our open cloud reduces the friction for developers to get applications up and running. We give autonomy and control to developers to flexibly choose their infrastructure and give them options to build, migrate, and deploy across multiple environments on-premises, in the cloud, or at the edge. Our philosophy is to give developers the best technology as quickly as possible. We are a tools company at our core, and we are constantly innovating and pushing out the latest code so that you can take our best technology and build your best technology, fast.

To learn more about how Microsoft is making it easier to build scalable applications and contributing to open source projects visit our most recent blog post, “Gain flexibility to run open source applications your way with Microsoft Azure.”
