Microsoft Azure with Azure Arc Azure Arc is a hybrid management service that enables customers to manage their on-premises, multi-cloud, and edge resources as if they were native Azure resources. It allows customers to apply Azure policies, governance, and monitoring to these resources, as well as to use Azure services such as Azure Monitor, Defender for Cloud, and Azure Resource Manager to manage them.

Some key benefits of Azure Arc include: • Centralized management: Azure Arc enables customers to manage their resources from a single pane of glass, regardless of where they are located. • Consistent experience: Azure Arc allows customers to use the same tools, processes, and policies to manage their resources, whether they are on-premises, in the cloud, or at the edge. • Cloud mobility: Azure Arc enables customers to move their workloads between on-premises, multi-cloud, and edge environments with minimal effort.

Simplify your hybrid infrastructure management By deploying Azure Arc, the work and cost of managing hybrid servers is reduced. For enterprises with their own datacenter, it is now possible to minimize the managed components, like getting rid of WSUS servers or 3rd party security services.
