MAIN PRESENTATION at 6:45: Open Source Technologies on Azure: A Survey - David Chappell
Even though it was once called Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud platform offers more than Windows—there’s plenty of support for open source technologies as well. This presentation takes a broad look at the open source offerings that Azure provides today, including:
- Linux, where the platform supports several distributions
- Programming technologies, including PHP, Node.js, and others
- Database technologies, including NoSQL options such as MongoDB and Cassandra
This is an architectural talk, so don’t expect to see demos. Instead, the goal is to give you a big-picture perspective on the open source options available on Azure today.
