Azure Service Fabricis the foundational microservices and orchestration platform that powers core Azure infrastructure. At the Microsoft //build conference earlier this year we announced the general availability ofWindows Server container orchestration for Service Fabric. Today, we're excited to announce the general availability of Service Fabric on Linux for container orchestration in all regions, including national clouds. With this, you can now run containerized applications on Service Fabric for both Windows Server and Linux. We currently support Ubuntu 16.04 for the Linux clusters, other Linux OSes including Red Hat Enterprise Linux are on the roadmap.
The runtime experience on Linux is identical to what you are familiar with on Windows as they use the same codebase. This familiarity creates an accelerated path for application development and deployment if you are using Service Fabric on Windows, and are also using Linux for some of your business needs.
