Microsoft recently announced the acquisition of cloud technology company Deis – an open source company that builds tools to make Kubernetes easier to use.
With a clear aim of more developers using its tools and platform, this move also cements one of the goals of the organization, which is to “ensure that open-source technologies remain a key element of the Redmond tech giant’s cloud strategy.”
This goes to show the growing importance of containers for deploying software across a variety of platforms and devices. Future investment in SaaS and cloud building blocks, open source and otherwise will continue to accelerate.
Good move Microsoft!
