Azure 认可的 Linux 分发版Endorsed Linux distributions on Azure

合作伙伴在 Azure 市场中提供了 Linux 映像。Partners provide Linux images in the Azure Marketplace. 我们与各大 Linux 社区合作以便在认可的发行版列表中添加更多成员。We are working with various Linux communities to add even more flavors to the Endorsed Distribution list. 在此期间,对于市场未提供的分发,用户始终可以按照创建并上传包含 Linux 操作系统的虚拟硬盘中的准则安装自己的 Linux。In the meantime, for distributions that are not available from the Marketplace, you can always bring your own Linux by following the guidelines at Create and upload a virtual hard disk that contains the Linux operating system.

支持的发行版和版本Supported distributions and versions

下表列出了 Azure 支持的 Linux 分发和版本。The following table lists the Linux distributions and versions that are supported on Azure. 有关 Azure 中支持 Linux 和开源代码技术的更多详细信息,请参阅 Azure 中对 Linux 映像的支持Refer to Support for Linux images in Azure for more detailed information about support for Linux and open-source technology in Azure.

Hyper-V 和 Azure 的 Linux 集成服务 (LIS) 驱动程序是 Azure 直接为上游 Linux 内核提供的内核模块。The Linux Integration Services (LIS) drivers for Hyper-V and Azure are kernel modules that Azure contributes directly to the upstream Linux kernel. 默认情况下,某些 LIS 驱动程序已内置在发行版的内核中。Some LIS drivers are built into the distribution's kernel by default. 适用于 Hyper-V 和 Azure 的 Linux Integration Services 版本 4.2 中提供了基于 CentOS 的旧式发行版供单独下载。Older distributions that are based on CentOS are available as a separate download at Linux Integration Services Version 4.2 for Hyper-V and Azure. 有关 LIS 驱动程序的详细信息,请参阅 Linux 内核要求See Linux kernel requirements for more information about the LIS drivers.

Azure Linux 代理已预安装在 Azure 市场映像中,通常可从分发的包存储库中获得。The Azure Linux Agent is already pre-installed on the Azure Marketplace images and is typically available from the distribution's package repository. 源代码可在 GitHub上找到。Source code can be found on GitHub.

映像的更新节奏Image update cadence

Azure 要求受认可 Linux 分发版的发布者在每个季度或以更快的节奏,定期使用最新修补程序和安全修复程序,更新其在 Azure 市场中的映像。Azure requires that the publishers of the endorsed Linux distributions regularly update their images in the Azure Marketplace with the latest patches and security fixes, at a quarterly or faster cadence. 在 Azure 市场中更新的映像将自动以新版映像 SKU 的形式提供给客户使用。Updated images in the Azure Marketplace are available automatically to customers as new versions of an image SKU. 有关如何查找 Linux 映像的详细信息:在 Azure 市场中查找 Linux VM 映像More information about how to find Linux images: Find Linux VM images in the Azure Marketplace.

Azure 优化的内核Azure-tuned kernels

Azure 与众多认可的 Linux 分发商密切合作,以优化他们在 Azure 市场中发布的映像。Azure works closely with various endorsed Linux distributions to optimize the images that they published to the Azure Marketplace. 这种协作的一个方面体现在:开发针对 Azure 平台优化的 Linux 内核,并以完全受支持组件的形式交付 Linux 分发版。One aspect of this collaboration is the development of "tuned" Linux kernels that are optimized for the Azure platform and delivered as fully supported components of the Linux distribution. Azure 优化的内核整合了新的功能和性能改进,并且与分发版中提供的默认或常规内核相比,其发布节奏更快(通常每季度发布一次)。The Azure-Tuned kernels incorporate new features and performance improvements, and at a faster (typically quarterly) cadence compared to the default or generic kernels that are available from the distribution.

在大多数情况下,你会发现这些内核已预装在 Azure 市场中的默认映像内,因此,Azure 客户可以立即获得这些优化内核的优势。In most cases you will find these kernels pre-installed on the default images in the Azure Marketplace, and so Azure customers will immediately get the benefit of these optimized kernels. 可在以下链接中找到有关这些 Azure 优化内核的详细信息:More information about these Azure-Tuned kernels can be found in the following links:

从 CoreOS 网站:From the CoreOS website:

CoreOS 在设计时就已考虑到了安全性、一致性和可靠性。CoreOS 使用 Linux 容器在更高的抽象级别管理服务,而不是通过 yum 或 apt 来安装程序包。单个服务的代码和所有依赖项都打包在一个容器中,该容器可以在一个或多个 CoreOS 计算机上运行。CoreOS is designed for security, consistency, and reliability. Instead of installing packages via yum or apt, CoreOS uses Linux containers to manage your services at a higher level of abstraction. A single service's code and all dependencies are packaged within a container that can be run on one or many CoreOS machines.
