Containers have been at the forefront of cloud transformation in recent years, and for good reason – Container technologies let organizations more easily build, deploy and move applications to and from the cloud. With this increase in agility and portability, containers help to make applications in the cloud. There is explosive interest in the deployment of containerized workloads on Azure, and ensuring that Azure is the best place to run those apps.

Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire Deis – a company at the center of the container transformation. Deis gives developers application agility, efficiency and reliability through their Kubernetes container management technologies.

In addition to their container expertise, the Deis team brings a depth of open source technology experience – furthering Microsoft’s commitments to improve developer productivity and to provide choice and flexibility for all customers. Members of the Deis team are strong supporters of the open source community – developing tools, contributing code and organizing developer meetups.

We expect Deis’ technology to make it even easier to work with the existing container portfolio including Linux and Windows Server Containers, Hyper-V Containers and Azure Container Service, no matter what tools they choose to use.
