Microsoft has been involved in open source initiatives by enabling, integrating, releasing and contributing to many open source projects and communities for well over a decade. We applaud the Software Heritage as an open project that will help curate and conserve human knowledge in the form of code for future generations as well as help today’s generations of developers find and re-use code worldwide.

We are proud to be one of the first industry partners for this initiative and to provide the Azure infrastructure to ensure the data is highly available.
