[opensuse] Microsoft and Linux's love-in heats up as SUSE tunes kernel for Azure
Microsoft and Linux continue to move ever closer, with the announcement that
SUSE has developed a custom Linux kernel tailored to Microsoft Azure.
Munich: The journey from Windows to Linux and back again

The kernel improves the performance and boot speeds of SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server (SLES) 15 on-demand instances running on the Azure cloud platform.

The new kernel also allows those running SLES on Azure to use the platform's
latest services, such as as Accelerated Networking with SR-IOV and Write
Accelerator, and should allow new services to be used as they're released,
SUSE says running SLES 15 on Azure should deliver up to 25 percent faster
network throughput and a 23 percent reduction in average latency compared to
earlier releases, as well as having a smaller memory footprint.

By default, SLES 15 instances on Azure will run on this custom-tuned kernel,
although users will be able to switch back to the standard kernel using the
package manager, Zypper. Users will also have access to tools and resources for
cloud-native deployments, available via the SUSE Public Cloud Module.
