I’m excited to announce today a preview of the Open Service Broker for Azure (OSBA), an implementation of the Open Service Broker API for Azure services. In a multi-cloud, multi-platform world, developers want a standard way to connect their applications to the wealth of services available in the marketplace.
The Open Service Broker API is an industry-wide effort to meet that demand, simply and securely. OSBA is the simplest, most flexible way to connect your applications to a suite of the most popular Azure services, from standard offerings like Azure Database for MySQL to unique Azure solutions like Azure Cosmos DB, our globally distributed multi-model database. We currently offer 11 Azure services and intend to support most others over the next year.
