With Azure, you have more choices to help your customers embrace the Cloud while maximizing their existing investment in open-source applications, frameworks, and languages. Make sure that your clients can use the tools they love and the skills they already have.
Given Azure's support for IaaS on the Linux, Java and PHP web application platforms, you can develop and test Linux and open source components in Azure. You can also add the power and scale of Azure to their Red Hat applications, and rely on Azure to quickly deploy them. With open source on Azure, clients will be able to run virtually any application they want, using their data source and with their operating system, on their devices.
