What is Azure Arc?
Azure Arc addresses this growing problem, delivering a set of innovative technologies that enables Azure services to run across on-premise, multi-cloud and edge. This extends Azure services and management to any infrastructure, accelerating innovation across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Azure Arc is a software solution that enables you to project your on-premises and multi-cloud resources into Azure Resource Manager. You can project these resources into your Azure subscription for inventory, policy, monitoring and security governance as if they did reside in Azure public cloud, providing a single common control plane for your Azure and on-premise workloads.
What are the benefits?
