Microsoft signed a deal with The Linux Foundation today to create the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) Linux on Azure certification.
More than 25% of Microsoft’s Azure customers are running Linux. And the company recently signed deal with ‘arch rival’ Red Hat to bring RHEL to Azure, signaling a major shift in the industry. For Microsoft, this certification is another step towards embracing Linux on Azure.
The two organizations come together to bring the open source community closer to the Azure cloud.
