Finally Intel's Cloud Friendly CLEAR LINUX is here !
Microsoft company says that Intel's Sharp Linux, a lightweight circulation of Linux that is optimized to run on Intel processors and is now available as a virtual machine in the Azure Marketplace.
Microsoft Orange customers looking for another Linux operating system (OS) option for their cloud workloads have another alternate to weigh this week. Clear Linux, a circulation of the open-source OPERATING-SYSTEM that is optimized for Intel processors, is now available as a digital machine (VM) in the Azure Marketplace. Launched in 2015 by chip-making giant Intel, Clear Cpanel is targeted at cloud and data center workloads that run on Intel-based computers, enabling those workloads to exploit the advanced six features and latest improvements that Intel bakes into their chips. Instead of developing another general-purpose division of the Linux OPERATING-SYSTEM suited to many different workloads, Intel opted for a lightweight, "lean-and-fast" approach, in line with the Crystal clear Linux project website. In Azure, the availability of Clear Linux not only promises brisk performance on Microsoft's cloud but also streamlined DevOps courtesy of the operating system's stateless capabilities. "By separating the system defaults and division best practices from the consumer configuration, Clear Linux makes simple maintenance and deployment which becomes very important as infrastructure scales, " discussed Jose Miguel Parrella, a Microsoft Azure Open Origin product manager, in a Jan. 18 blog post. "This also pairs well with bundles, an effective way of distributing software that allows for scenarios similar to this system update with new kernel and reboot in simply a few seconds. inch Clear Linux is available as in bare-bones setup, allowing users to generate away solutions with their preferred bundles, Parrella said. Offered too is a Docker-based container image as well as a working test machine-learning image with pre-installed open-source tools. Breaking from it's long policy of promoting Windows everywhere, Ms has come to accept Linux to help increase its Azure solutions environment and entice enterprises into moving their workloads to the company's Azure cloud. Linux first appeared on Azure in 2012 when CentOS, OpenSUSE, Ubuntu and SUSE Linux Enterprise Machine all came to the cloud platform. In 2014, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella famously declared that "Microsoft Loves Linux, " during a press event, and since then more tastes of Linux have become a member of in, including CoreOS, Debian, Oracle Linux and Crimson Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). In November, the company made its biggest move yet to ingratiate itself with the Linux community. Shedding its image as the mortal enemy of the open-source OS, Microsoft company joined the Linux Basis as a Platinum Customer, the highest level achievable. Microsoft will pay $250, 000 to the base and pledges to support its open-source efforts. The company joins other THIS heavyweights at the top, including IBM, Cisco, Intel, Oracle, Qualcomm and Samsung Korea. "By becoming an Apache Foundation Platinum member, Ms is better capable of work together with the free community to deliver transformative mobile and cloud activities to more people, " said Jim Zemlin, executive overseer of The Linux Base, in a Nov. of sixteen announcements. "Microsoft has recently been a key contributor to many projects, and we start to see the company intensifying it is involvement and commitment to open development. "
