What the introduction of Azure Arc means for Microsoft customers and partners

November 20 2019

During the Ignite conference, Microsoft rolled out a number of new services for Azure, and top among them was Azure Arc. The offering's hybrid technology management tools will aim to promote a self-service approach to an organization's mix of Windows and Linux servers, Azure data services, and Kubernetes clusters, as well as other on-prem and cloud infrastructure.
