Azure Service Fabric is the foundational technology that powers Azure core infrastructure and mission critical services such as Azure SQL Database, Event Hubs, and Microsoft Teams. This technology, exactly as we use it within Microsoft, was made publicly available in 2015. Since then, we have seen it been used for the most demanding and performant workloads, both inside and outside Microsoft. We have seen adoption of the product to support highly available, scalable, and flexible workload types, including containers, stateful and stateless programming models, and regular executables. Over this period of time customers have expressed feedback that infrastructure deployment and management should be easier.
To provide our customers with a simplified experience we are excited to announce the preview of Service Fabric managed clusters. Service Fabric managed clusters in Azure maintain the same enterprise-grade reliability, scalability, and proven mission-critical performance that our customers have come to expect, while making it easier than ever before to deploy and manage your Service Fabric environment, freeing you up to deliver on business impact.
Simplified Cluster Deployment and Management
We have exciting new features that will make managing your Service Fabric clusters easier than ever before:

Looking towards the future
The Service Fabric managed cluster resource is the first step in providing a managed experience for our customers. In the near future, we are working towards decreasing the operational overhead even further by separating out the system service components and providing them as a managed service. Look out for additional announcements around this work in the coming months!
