You'll then explore popular Linux distributions, including RHEL 7, RHEL 8, SLES, Ubuntu Pro, CentOS 7, and more.

As you progress, you'll cover the technical details of Linux workloads such as LAMP, Java, and SAP, and understand how to assess your current environment and prepare for your migration to Azure through cloud governance and operations planning. Finally, you'll go through the execution of a real-world migration project and learn how to analyze and debug some common problems that Linux on Azure users may encounter.

By the end of this Linux book, you'll be proficient at performing an effective migration of Linux workloads to Azure for your organization.
