Azure Arc for Server Management

Provides a single control plane to allow you to manage your hybrid/multi-cloud estate by extending the capabilities of Azure Resource Manager to virtual machines regardless of if they are on premises or deployed in another public cloud platform. By enrolling your VMs in Azure Arc they will be auto enrolled to use the following services.

Inventory and Operation

• Update Management - deliver updates and patches to your VMs

• Change and inventory tracking – used to provide details of current configuration and any changes that have been made to the OS

• Azure Monitor – collect and analyse logs and metrics to understand the availability and performance of applications, OS and VM resources (I.e. CPU, RAM etc)


• Azure Policy - enables enforcement of organisational standards i.e. ISO 27001, PCI DSS, or other custom standard


• Azure Defender – Anti malware and threat protection

• Defender for Cloud – detect and remediate security vulnerabilities

• Microsoft Sentinel – SIEM/SOAR

Key Benefits

• Single set of tooling to manage your estate, same operating model can be applied on premises and in the cloud

• Ability to set compliance, and security baselines across your entire estate and view compliance/security scores across the board

• Apply the same level of governance across your Hybrid/Multi-cloud estate regardless of where servers are hosted

• Single source of truth – Arc effectively allows Azure to be used as a CMDB
