Linux support should mean developers can build applications using the tools that they’re used to.
The Azure CLI has been integrated, so you can use a bash shell to operate and manage your applications and cluster, work is underway to enable a native development experience on Mac
We have provided a Vagrant-based setup so that you can easily stand up a local Service Fabric cluster in a VirtualBox VM.
When testing, we needed both a one-box cluster, as well as real multi-machine clusters.
Preview customers can create Linux SF clusters through the portal. The underlying infrastructure used is the same across Windows and Linux; for example, your cluster is built on the VM Scale Sets that can be automatically scaled up or down based on load.
