Microsoft also is working with Oracle to make sure all its applications, including Oracle Linux-based applications, work on Azure, Anderson said.
"We want to make sure Linux is a high-class citizen on our infrastructure," he said.
Microsoft's partnership with Oracle is about providing customers choice, including the ability to take work done on-premise to the cloud, Anderson said.
"It's remarkable how fast you can get this to customers," he said. "It's remarkable how fast you can deliver services to your customers."
