SUSE new custom kernel specifically for Microsoft Azure

Microsoft and Linux continue to live their love life, which is confirmed by the announcement of SUSE that it has developed a custom Linux kernel specifically for Microsoft Azure.SUSE

The kernel is said to improve the boot speed of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 15 in parameters of the Azure platform.

The new kernel also allows those running SLES on Azure to use the latest platform technology, such as Accelerated Networking with SR-IOV and Write Accelerator.

"We've worked closely with SUSE to ensure that our customers using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server have the best experience with Microsoft Azure," said Ky Srinivasan, CEO of Microsoft Open Source.

SUSE, on the other hand, states that if you run it SLES 15 in Azure there will be up to 25 percent faster network performance, and a 23 percent reduction in average latency compared to older versions.

By default, SLES 15 instances in Azure will only run with the custom kernel, but any administrator who wishes can change the kernel using the Zypper package manager.

Note that Microsoft to date supports many Linux distributions in Azure: CentOS, CoreOS, Debian, Oracle Linux, RHEL, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), openSUSE and Ubuntu.

The current relationship between Microsoft and Linux has nothing to do with 2001, when then-CEO Steve Ballmer said Linux was a "cancer."

With the current CEO of the company Satya Nadella we have witnessed a great love… that no one knows how far it will go: Microsoft loves Linux since 2014.
