Ignite 2019: Azure Arc extends Azure management across infrastructures

In one of the biggest announcements at this month’s Ignite 2019, Microsoft gave us details Azure Arc, a new set of technologies that aim to extend the control plane of Azure to on-premises, multicloud environments, and edge.

The tool gives users a central, unified, and self-service approach for managing servers and data on a variety of platforms from anywhere. It also extends adoption of cloud practices like DevOps and Azure security across different environments. Here’s more information about each of these capabilities to help you make the most of this new offering

Azure Arc extends Azure management across environments

One of the key aspects of Azure Arc is the extension of Azure Resource Manager. This allows customers to access a central and unified approach for managing Windows and Linux Servers, Kubernetes clusters and Azure data services. Users can access these capabilities at scale across on-premises, multi-cloud, and edge environments.

Adopting cloud practices on-premises

Additionally, Azure Arc extends the cloud DevOps and cloud-native configuration management features available for all Azure resources. Users can create new cloud-native applications with immediate and programmatic access to resources. And with Azure Arc, you can access these capabilities across any on-premises, multi-cloud, and edge environments.

More specifically, this allows developers to build containerized apps with a wider choice of tools. And it gives IT teams the ability to use configuration as code and ensure that all apps are deployed, configured, and governed in the same, since they can easily use GitOps-based configuration management across on-premises, multi-cloud, and edge environments.

Implement Azure security

Of course, security and compliance are always a concern for businesses where any new tool is involved. So Azure Arc also includes Microsoft’s cloud security features across on-premises, multicloud, and edge. These practices and options include RBAC, Azure activity log for auditing actions, Azure Lighthouse for secure delegated management, and enforcement of security policies through Azure Policy.
