Microsoft’s support of the open source Kubernetes container orchestration tool seems to grow by the day. Direct from Kubecon/CloudNativeCon 2017, recently held in Austin, we spoke with Microsoft Distinguished Engineer Brendan Burns as well as with Gabe Monroy, the Microsoft Azure program lead for containers. We chatted about about the latest tools that have come from Microsoft to enable Kubernetes for a wider array of workloads.

Microsoft has taken an approach that essentially meets the developer halfway by providing abstractions so tools like Jenkins and Terraform can seamlessly work in hybrid, multi-cloud environments using third-party tools. It's a mouthful but speaks to the concept of federation and how abstracting operations has become an important philosophy for Microsoft as it works to help developers bridge the gaps that have long been impassable. The intricate operations requirements to glue disparate components has long eluded customers. To close the gap means meeting developers where they are.
In essence, Microsoft is offering a platform for developers to use the tools they know and love instead of rebuilding from scratch, said Arun Chandrasekhar, Senior Program Manager at Microsoft Azure, who joined us for a conversation at OpenSource Summit in Los Angeles in September.

A long running narrative about complexity has served as a story line for many years in the communities that made distributed systems possible. For example, Microsoft recently announced that Azure App Service now runs on Linux. The underlying infrastructure depends on Docker to run containers that are either built in with specific stack versions, or developers’ own custom containers. Microsoft is participating in open source communities and using technologies to abstract complexities for developers building web applications.
"It allows to deploy, run and scale web apps quickly without thinking about the infrastructure," said Ahmed Elnably, Program Manager II at Microsoft, in an interview at Open Source Summit.
