Azure Arc

Azure Arc

Azure Arc offers a centralised and consistent approach to managing your entire environment thanks to a unified management platform that simplifies governance and management across multi-cloud and on-premises environments.

Here’s a brief overview of why
you should consider Azure Arc

Resource Management

Azure Arc let’s your manage and organise resources, such as virtual machines, Kubernetes clusters, and databases, across hybrid environments using Azure Resource Manager. This provides a unified management experience and enables consistent deployment and configuration practices.

Azure Policy

Organise and enforce policies to ensure compliance across resources managed by Azure Arc, including those outside of Azure. Any business can define policies centrally and apply them consistently across different environments.

Monitoring and Insights

Azure Arc provides centralised monitoring and logging capabilities, allowing businesses to gain visibility and insights into the health, performance, and operational state of resources across hybrid environments. This helps with troubleshooting and diagnostics.

Security and Compliance

Azure Arc helps businesses maintain consistent security and compliance policies across all resources, regardless of their location. This includes features like Azure Security Center and Azure Defender, which can be applied to resources managed through Azure Arc.

Azure Services Extension

Azure Arc enables the extension of select Azure services to on-premises and edge environments. Configure Azure VM extensions to use Azure management services to monitor, secure, and update your servers, and Zero-touch compliance and configuration for Kubernetes clusters using Azure Policy.

Simplified Resource Scaling

With Azure Arc, you can easily scale your resources up or down, whether they are in Azure or on-premises. This flexibility allows you to meet changing business demands without the need for complex resource migrations.
With Azure Arc, you can extend Azure services and capabilities to your small or vastly distributed infrastructure, enabling consistent management and control. It provides a single control plane for managing and monitoring resources across different locations, making it easier to deploy, configure, and operate workloads in hybrid environments.
