Announcements and cows at Azure Open Source Day - Feb 15

Copper Contributor

Azure Open Source Day is a free digital event featuring Linux and open-source speakers from Microsoft, AMD, Red Hat, SUSE, GitHub and SitePro who come together to share tips and best practices on how to turbocharge apps and data with open-source and hybrid cloud technologies. 



Attendees will learn how Microsoft is committed to open source and works with the open-source community to develop new technologies. They’ll hear about the latest trends and capabilities of using Linux and Azure together—direct from Microsoft insiders.

Why attend?

  • Get the inside scoop on CBL-Mariner, the Linux distribution built by Microsoft to host Azure open-source services.
    • A rapidly increasing number of Azure services are built using open source, leading Microsoft to create CBL-Mariner, Azure’s own internal Linux distribution. Learn why Azure decided to build Mariner, how it is being developed in the open, and what benefits it brings to customers using open-source services on Azure.


  • Find out how to better automate and manage Linux investments on Azure using Azure Hybrid Benefit and Project Bicep (next generation ARM Templates).
    • Get a quick overview of the new Bicep language for native, declarative resource deployments to Azure.


  • Discover tools for every developer, including Visual Studio Code, GitHub Codespaces, and Azure managed database and AI services.
    • Discover how developers are modernizing applications with Azure managed open-source data and AI services. This session will feature real-world examples of developers who have re-platformed or re-architected applications, and the design and technology decisions they made to create more scalable and performant applications.


  • Learn about application modernization best practices using containers and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
    • Get an overview on Microsoft’s full spectrum of cloud native applications and open source on Azure. Join us to learn about our latest innovations for containers and serverless including Azure Kubernetes Service, Azure Red Hat OpenShift, and Azure Container Apps.


  • Hear from Microsoft insiders and Linux industry leaders like Red Hat and SUSE.
    • Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform is a robust, open source automation solution that allows users to build and operate automation across the different parts of an organization. Red Hat has been working to bring the power of the Ansible Automation Platform to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, including native integrations to numerous Azure services. These integrations provide a differentiated experience unique for Azure users to quickly and easily get started with automation for your Azure resources. 


  • Learn how to deploy and manage Kubernetes everywhere with Rancher by SUSE running on Microsoft Azure. Rancher addresses the operational and security challenges of managing multiple Kubernetes clusters across any infrastructure, while providing DevOps teams with integrated tools for running containerized workloads. Transform your business operations without negative impact during the journey to hybrid cloud providing reliability and scalability. The key topics that will be covered include:
    • SUSE and Microsoft partnership
    • Rancher container management platform
    • Deployment of Kubernetes cluster demo


  • Ask the experts your questions during the live chat Q&A.
    • During the event—9:00AM to 10:30AM Pacific Time—is your opportunity to connect to these industry experts and ask your questions. Don’t miss out!


Join us on February 15, 2022 and hear Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, share a special announcement on the 30th anniversary of Linux.
