Microsoft recently announced that Azure HDInsight (Hadoop) will be one of the first cloud services to run on Linux. Previously, Azure was equipped to work with six different types of Linux distributions. Azure will now be able to deploy, host, and manage its services on Linux servers. This technical merge will increase the service capabilities of Azure by allowing it to run on Ubuntu Linux Virtual Machines in addition to offering Hadoop on Azure.
