Microsoft is porting SQL Server to Linux
Microsoft's plan is to make SQL Server generally available on Linux by mid-2017, said Scott Guthrie, head of Microsoft's Cloud & Enterprise business, in a blog post announcing the news. The company will offer both on-premises and cloud versions of the product.
Guthrie's blog post mentions that SQL Server on Linux will include the Stretch Database capabilities that Microsoft is building into SQL Server 2016. It doesn't specify which other SQL Server 2016 technologies will and won't be in the Linux version.
Paul Cormier, President of Products and Technologies for Red Hat says that Red Hat will be offering SQL Server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, also is quoted as saying that Ubuntu developers will be able to build on SQL Server.
It was just last November that Microsoft and Red Hat signed a long-awaited deal to bring Red Hat Enterprise Linux to Azure. Microsoft also offers the Ubuntu, CentOS, Oracle Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise and openSUSE, distributions hosted on Azure.
