LinkedIn will be transitioning to Azure in the next couple of years

LinkedIn Headquarters Mountain View

Following the acquisition of LinkedIn by Microsoft in 2016, Microsoft made it clear that the company would remain independent, and that included allowing the company to create its own data centers instead of switching to Microsoft's Azure infrastructure . Well, it seems that things have changed long after three years, as LinkedIn has just announced a transition of several years to Azure, a measure that now seems necessary as the company experiences significant growth.

"In recent years we have leveraged several Azure technologies so that they have had a significant impact on our business. The agility, capacity and elasticity provided by Azure has allowed us to accelerate the subsequent delivery of the video, improve automatic translation in Feed and keep inappropriate content off our site. That success, along with the opportunity to take advantage of the relationship we have established with Microsoft, made Azure the obvious choice, "said Mohak Shroff, Senior Vice President of Engineering at LinkedIn.

With more than more than 645 million members and 20 million jobs, LinkedIn has become a massive platform in recent years. What started as a professional network has now become a publishing platform, a learning platform and a video platform, and this massive expansion is now leading the company to update its infrastructure to better serve its growing user base. .

“Moving to Azure will give us access to a wide range of hardware and software innovations, and an unprecedented global scale. This will allow us to focus on areas where we can offer unique value to our members and customers. The cloud holds for us the future and we are sure that Azure is the right platform to build in the coming years, "Shroff said today.
