Microsoft CVP Brad Anderson just did a post on his In the Cloud blog highlighting a recent Linux Pro Magazine article about Linux Integration Services (LIS) and Microsoft’s support for Linux IT professionals.

In Anderson’s words, "this article from Linux Pro underscores just how hugely important LIS is to Microsoft. No one here in Redmond is ignorant of the fact that the enterprise world is heterogeneous – but that doesn’t mean you want to run two completely different hypervisor infrastructures, or even two different private clouds.”

Read the full post here and you can follow Brad on Twitter @InTheCloudMSFT. You can also learn more about LIS in our coverage of the LIS 3.5 release and the Open Door Policy interview with Microsoft’s K.Y. Srinivasan.

Check back on the blog every day this week, when we’ll highlight various ways Microsoft’s cloud platform supports Linux fans.
