Microsoft Snatches Up Deis To Boost Azure Kubernetes Tech

For Microsoft, Azure is the company’s future from not only an infrastructure perspective but also for revenue. To make sure that its platform is available with the tools developers are using and also in the localized regions where laws require in-country data centers, the company is investing billions into this platform.

Announced today, Microsoft is acquiring Deis, a container technology company. The software improves application agility, efficiency, and reliability, through their Kubernetes software stack.

If Kubernetes doesn’t sound familiar, it should, especially if you are thinking about using containers in your environment. The container platform, widely used on Google’s cloud, has a large user-base and is one of the key strengths of Google’s cloud platform.
