Azure Core Compute is growing incredibly fast! We provide millions of virtual machines for customers to run their services in the cloud. We are a globally available foundational service that hosts services with the scale of Bing/Skype/AzureStore/SQL, host millions of multiplayer gaming sessions and allow solving large computational problems in seconds.

Azure Compute team is the “kernel” of Microsoft’s Cloud OS. The Azure Computer Manager is the “kernel” of the Microsoft Compute Cloud. We build a fault tolerant distributed system on top of commodity datacenter hardware, to deliver an infrastructure for hosting cloud applications in virtual servers. We create an illusion that resources are limitless, infinitely elastic, and always available.

The team is working on few different areas that you can have a big impact. This includes:

Projects improving cluster scale and density- this includes capabilities and mechanisms for large service footprints, managing 20x more physical machines and services than it does today, schemes to improve VM density, reducing cluster fragmentation, increase utilization of compute cores; expanding Azure capabilities for Containers (Docker/Hyper-V Containers), etc. We are building a set of highly scalable, highly available, micro services that will be the next generation of the Compute Fabric and provide service management for all Azure Compute services.

Projects involving end customer service uptime and availability - applying and building machine learning to build a 'Smarter' kernel that can be adaptive to events in the datacenter and services to decide on actions - especially when needed to increase service availability and uptime. We are also working with Windows and Hyper-V on Live Migration and its capabilities into the Azure platform.

Projects around service reliability and performance - provide extremely reliable and fast on-demand compute instances irrespective of the size and scale of the service (multiple orders of magnitude faster than today). We are a result-oriented team working vertically through the whole stack to deliver order of magnitude improvements.

Azure is a big bet for Microsoft, and we are taking big bets of our own in the Compute team. If you’re interested in attacking hard technical problems and driving innovation in an area that has huge potential for impact on the company’s future, then this is THE position for you
