Microsoft Enables Linux on Azure, Offers Emergency .NET Fix

Microsoft has recently announced that it is enabling Linux on Windows Azure, and working on allowing its customers to make virtual machines (VMs) persistent on its Windows Azure platform. This means that users will be able to create virtual Linux servers on Azure without losing data. Though Azure already provides support for VMs, the company is now fulfilling the desires of customers requesting to add persistent VMs to Azure. Azure currently has the ability to run VMs, but any time the server is rebooted it loses state.

To benefit its customers, Microsoft intends to launch a Community Technology Preview (CTP) test-build of the persistent Virtual Machine capability in the spring of 2012.  Linux on Azure is a hot news topic in the tech industry. This move gives Azure general purpose infrastructure-as-a-service capabilities to complement the existing platform-as-a-service offering. According to some, the ability to run persistent machines and Linux support are both frequently requested demands by customers. But Microsoft apparently won’t officially support Linux, encouraging customers to upload their own images instead.
