In mid-November 2016, Microsoft offered its first public beta of Azure Service Fabric for Linux. Now it quietly took another step with the fabric by open-sourcing certain parts of it.

Azure Service Fabric is a platform for cloud-hosted microservices. Originally, created to handle Microsoft projects such as Azure SQL, Cortana, and Skype for Business, it shields the user from the underlying operating system by handling multiple application instances, health and load reporting, and automatic state management, to name a few.

This month's release by Microsoft on GitHub doesn't include the Service Fabric runtime, but rather, parts of its software development kit.

This includes the SDK packages found on NuGet, such as Reliable Services, Reliable Actors, Service Remoting, and ASP.NET Core integration.

The team asserts that it will look for the immediate feedback and contributions to what's offered, as input to determine the best time to open source the runtime, Microsoft said.

But what gets to be open source will include the Service Fabric's clustering layers and the Reliable Collections replicated persisted store, the software giant asserted.

What's on offer at this stage is three repositories: Reliable Services, Reliable Actors, and ASP.NET Core Service Fabric integration.

While not open source, Microsoft lets you download the Service Fabric runtime for free. Instructions are available on its website.
