Microsoft’s strategy is to introduce new Azure platform features through this special event, dedicated to all its global customers, partners, and IT professionals. This event promises to be as insightful as informative, unveiling Microsoft’s latest ventures in cloud technology with AI.

Let’s begin by exploring Microsoft’s take on the latest open-source technology!

“It’s the perfect opportunity for developers to learn how to use data to build and scale intelligent apps faster with Open Source and Azure!”

The Impact Of AI & Open Source In Cloud Software Development

Microsoft’s Open Source is a game-changer for cloud development, enabling software developers to access vast resources, tools, and technologies. Artificial Intelligence has transformed how software is developed and deployed in Azure Cloud. Popular AI-enabled cloud platforms enable developers to create intelligent apps to learn and adapt to changes. With AI, developers can create innovative, more intelligent, efficient, and scalable software solutions.

How Does Open Source Work On Azure Build?

Microsoft’s brand-new cloud-native application, “Azure Open Source,” is the ideal developer tool. It offers many developer tools and services, enabling today’s developers to build intelligent yet scalable cloud-compatible applications.

Azure Cognitive Services and Azure Builds are among the top Azure Functionalities that have adapted the AI capabilities of Open Source. The top services that best-demonstrates how Open Source works include speech recognition systems, image recognition systems, and language translator systems. Azure Machine Learning also leverages AI to train and deploy complex ML models. With these tools, software developers can analyze data faster to learn about user behavior. Now, let’s explore the top feature innovations by Microsoft this year!

Newly Introduced Features In Azure

This year’s Azure Open Source Day aims to highlight the latest features of Microsoft’s cloud platform, which has been continuously improved through the company’s tireless efforts to enhance its Open Source platform.

  • Azure Kubernetes Service now supports Windows containers, enabling developers to run both Linux and Windows containers on the same cluster.
  • Machine Learning now includes AutoML, simplifying the AI process and making it accessible to more developers.
  • Kubernetes’ Event Driven Autoscaling feature allows for the automated scaling of Kubernetes deployments by utilizing personalized metrics.
  • Azure Database for MySQL now includes support for horizontal scaling.
  • Azure Cache for The Redis Enterprise offers improved security and performance.

These are some of the most in-demand Microsoft features this year that utilize Open Source technology.

Training Large Language Models At Scale

The emergence of large language models is one of the most exciting developments by Microsoft in recent years. These Cloud Azure AI models can read, write, and generate human-like texts, making them ideal for creating a wide range of interactive applications, such as

  • Chatbots
  • Language translators
  • Content generators

Microsoft’s Open Source provides developers with the right tools and services, like Azure Cognitive Services, making it easy to train such large language models at scale.

The Combination Of Open Source With Web3

Web3 represents the upcoming phase of the internet that pledges to be more decentralized, secure, and focused on privacy. Web3 is built on open-source technologies like blockchain and smart contracts, making it possible to create a more open and democratic internet. Microsoft’s Open Source plays a significant role in the development of Web3, providing developers with tools and services that make it easy to build decentralized applications. With Blockchain Azure Service, developers can create blockchain networks, while Azure Logic Apps enable the creation of smart contracts.
