Microsoft and open source
While the company is having a good time, thanks to its successful Azure cloud platform, Microsoft Build 2019. It does not seem to have aroused much expectation at least not as in other years.
Among the ads that draw the most attention to the developer community is the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). It is one of the fastest growing services in Azure used in global companies such as ASOS to manage container cloud application infrastructure to scale. To provide greater reliability and flexibility. In Build, Microsoft delivers different new features and capabilities to drive and secure Kubernetes workloads :
- Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA ) is an open-source component that supports the implementation of event-driven containers without a server in Kubernetes created in collaboration with Red Hat. Now in a public preview version. KEDA presents a new hosting option for Azure Functions that can be implemented as a container in Kubernetes clusters. To bring the programming model and scale controller of Azure Functions to any Kubernetes implementation. Both in the cloud as in site with OpenShift.
- Azure Policy for AKS applies to scaled executions and helps protect AKS clusters in a centralized and consistent manner. Azure Policy blocks any violations that occur during runtime and develops compliance assessments in all existing clusters for up-to-date visibility through the environment.
Finally Quantum is an exciting new frontier for developers. Microsoft designed Q # specifically for quantum programming to deliver an accessible and high-level programming language with a native type system for qubits, operators and other abstractions. In Build, Microsoft opens the Q # compiler and simulator code to increase its Q. Developer community and unlock new opportunities for partners and startups that allow them to improve bids for their own businesses.
Microsoft has changed a lot in recent years. Developing a new business model for the company that has given good dividends. And has once again positioned it as one of the profitable companies in the sector.
Microsoft Build remained as a remnant event of other times. Which seeks to maintain a tradition. But cannot attract attention for its innovations.
