Tigera has been awarded Microsoft’s 2022 Partner of the Year award for OSS on Azure

We are proud to announce that we have won the 2022 Microsoft OSS on Azure Partner of the Year award! The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft-based applications, services, and devices during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 3,900 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide. Tigera was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services for open source on Azure.

Since June 2021, Tigera and Microsoft Azure together provide users with active build, deploy, and runtime security with full-stack observability for securing, monitoring, and troubleshooting containers on Azure and AKS. Tigera works closely with Microsoft to offer networking, security, and observability for containerized workloads running in Microsoft Azure.

We are very proud to be recognized as Microsoft’s Partner of the Year for OSS on Azure as it re-affirms the reach and pervasiveness of Tigera’s Calico Open Source solution for container networking and security on Azure and AKS. As enterprises standardize across Microsoft Azure, customers require a resource-efficient and scalable networking and security solution that protects the workloads in a hybrid environment extending from the cloud (Azure and AKS) to traditional on-premises deployments (AKS on Azure Stack HCI and Windows Server). Calico is the only technology to support native Windows, eBPF, and Linux containers to match Microsoft’s breadth of offerings in AKS, AKS on Azure Stack HCI and Windows Server, and self-managed Kubernetes in Azure.
