Red Hat Enterprise Linux available on Azure

Customers can deploy on-demand Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) instances from the Azure Marketplace, where now more than 60% of the images are Linux-based. Since November 2015 joint Red Hat partnership announcement, Azure customers have been able to migrate their Red Hat subscriptions to Microsoft Azure. The RHEL release provides customers with even greater choice and flexibility for their cloud deployments by making RHEL instances available on-demand, within the Azure Marketplace.

The RHEL 6.7 and 7.2 images are now live in all regions (except China and US Government) and can be deployed directly from the Azure Marketplace. Red Hat and Microsoft have worked together to ensure that Red Hat subscriptions purchased through the Azure Marketplace provide unique, integrated subscription support through direct access to the Red Hat customer portal. This provides customers the full breadth of Red Hat enterprise value delivered directly as part of the Azure on-demand experience.

Since the announcement of the partnership in November, there has been strong interest and momentum from Microsoft customers looking to bring their Red Hat investments to Azure. Microsoft also offers a fully integrated support experience with co-located Red Hat and Microsoft support engineers sitting side-by-side to help you when you need it!
