Azure Sphere is a Linux-based operating system created by Microsoft for Internet of Things applications.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] It is the first time Microsoft has publicly released an operating system running the Linux kernel[9] and the second Unix-like operating system that the company has developed for external (public) users – the other being Xenix. The name is derived from the Microsoft Azure project.

The first supported processor is the ARM based MediaTek MT3620.[10]
