Debian Images for Microsoft Azure

Melissa Ames

As a cloud computing platform from Microsoft, Azure provides a growing collection of integrated services for analysis, computing, database, mobile devices, networking, storage, and web.

The free Linux distribution Debian will also be available on the Azure platform in the future.

In conjunction with Microsoft, credativ is currently preparing corresponding Debian images for Debian 8 (Jessie) and Debian before 7 (Wheezy), which are specially designed to run on Azure and can be easily managed via the platform. credativ will also support the long term maintenance and updating of the Debian images for Azure through its Open Source Support Centres.

credativ employees were at this year's Debian Conference (DebConf15) in Heidelberg this week, supporting as a Gold sponsor and answering technical questions alongside Microsoft.
