Azure Marketplace is an online store that contains thousands of software applications and services built by industry-leading technology companies. In Azure Marketplace you can find, try, buy, and deploy the software and services you need to build new solutions and manage your cloud infrastructure. In the context of SQL Server on Linux, you can create, deploy, and configure Linux-based virtual machines running SQL Server.
What are the benefits?
Customers creating SQL on Linux VM's can skip the step of manually installing, running commands, and configuring a SQL Server instance, instead provision a ready-to-go virtual machine running SQL Server. This benefits a lot of customers who might not be interested, or have the time, for manual step-by-step creation and configuration.
With that being said,
