Running OpenBSD on Azure

Contributed by rueda on from the bright blue puffy dept.

A new Microsoft Azure blog entry, Running OpenBSD on Azure, describes OpenBSD support:

Today we are happy to share you that Azure supports OpenBSD 6.1 with the collaboration effort from Esdenera and Microsoft. Meanwhile Esdenera brings their firewall product based on OpenBSD on board Azure Marketplace now.

[Esdenera is Reyk (reyk@) Flöter's company.]

The Register covers this development in Microsoft Azure adds OpenBSD support. Repeat. Azure adds OpenBSD support.

This results from the efforts of mikeb@, reyk@, jsg@, and others.

    This is pretty sweet.

    I love the Lyrics from the 6.1 release song:

    "Back around that Halloween,
    Microsoft said open source would never last,
    But now they use the repo tools,
    In the same open access way."

    What about the security of that OpenBSD. What with an agent programs installed for monitoring, what about the keys created during an installation?
