Microsoft Azure Offers an Optimized, Standardized, and Simplified Rocky Linux Experience for the Cloud

Azure is a cloud computing platform and service created by Microsoft. It provides a wide range of services, such as computing, storage, and networking, as well as various tools for building, deploying, and managing applications.

Microsoft Azure and Rocky Linux are both powerful and flexible platforms that can be used to build and deploy modern, enterprise-grade applications. By leveraging the compatibility of Rocky Linux with RHEL and the wide range of services and tools provided by Azure, organizations can easily migrate their existing workloads to the cloud, while also taking advantage of the security, scalability, and global reach of Azure.

By using Rocky Linux on Google Cloud, you can take advantage of a wide range of cloud services. With Google Cloud, you can easily integrate your Rocky Linux instances with a range of services such as storage, networking, and security, to create a highly-available and secure environment for your applications.

There are several reasons why using Rocky Linux on Microsoft Azure can be beneficial:


Microsoft Azure is a highly scalable cloud computing platform, allowing you to easily increase or decrease resources as needed, without interruption to your applications. This is especially useful for businesses that experience fluctuations in demand.


Azure offers a range of security features to help protect data and applications, such as Azure Active Directory, Azure Key Vault, and Azure Security Center. This helps to ensure that your data and applications are protected against various types of threats.


Rocky Linux is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), meaning that applications and scripts written for RHEL should work seamlessly on Rocky Linux. 

Long-term support:

Rocky Linux offers Long-term support, which means that users can continue to receive updates and security patches for a period of up to 10 years. This is ideal for businesses that require a stable and secure operating system for their applications.


Azure provides management and automation tools that can be used to easily deploy and manage multiple virtual machines running Rocky Linux. This helps to streamline the deployment process and improve efficiency.


Using a free and open-source operating system like Rocky Linux can help to reduce the overall cost of running your applications on Azure.

To deploy Rocky Linux on Azure, users can use Azure's Virtual Machine service to create a new virtual machine running Rocky Linux. They can then use Azure's other services, such as storage and networking, to configure the virtual machine as needed.
