Microsoft’s Azure Container Service is now generally available. First unveiled last September, the tool allows developers to migrate containers to and from Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service and to orchestrate applications using Apache Mesos or Docker Swarm.
The company also announced that it is joining an open source project called DC/OS. The project, which was derived from Mesosphere’s Datacenter Operating System, is also supported by Accenture, Cisco and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. It is a distributed systems kernel that makes it easy to deploy containers at scale.
