Microsoft Azure


Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform. With Azure, you can build, deploy and manage applications across Microsoft-managed datacenters worldwide. Use any language, tool or framework to build your applications and integrate them with your existing IT environment.

Through the partnership between Azul Systems and Microsoft Azure, the global community of Java developers gain access to open source Java on the Microsoft Azure cloud. Azul Zulu® is a commercialized, fully supported multiplatform build of OpenJDK™ and is available on Microsoft Azure. The Azure Virtual Machines Gallery provides a range of prefab virtual machine templates, including several pre-installed with Zulu. VMs for Windows and Linux are available in the Azure Gallery with optional Standard technical support provided by Azul’s JVM support staff.
