15 Administrators and developers can get started by adopting innovative Azure services that support hybrid operations. • Bring Azure security and services to hybrid environments. • Simplify IT management. • Modernize apps from your datacenter. • Manage Windows Server in Azure Virtual Machines. Bring Azure security and services to hybrid environments Azure Arc helps you convert Windows Servers into Azure resources, making it easy to organize, govern, and secure Windows Server machines along with Linux servers, SQL Server, and Kubernetes clusters across datacenters and the edge. After you use Arc to enroll your Windows Servers, you can easily integrate with powerful Azure Services, including Microsoft Defender for Cloud, discussed in the previous section of this book. Simplify IT management Simply point and click with Azure Automanage to automate operations and apply consistent best practices across the entire lifecycle of Windows Server and Linux virtual machines, on-premises or in Azure. Benefit from additional capabilities only with your Azure virtual machines, such as Hotpatch, and deploy security updates without having to reboot. Bring cloud innovation to your datacenter Modernize apps from your datacenter Modernize Linux and Windows .NET apps on-premises and deploy them anywhere, with Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) on Azure Stack HCI. The solution simplifies on-premises implementation o f the popular AKS orchestrator, which automates running containerized applications at scale. Use familiar tools, gain consistency and built-in security, and extend to Azure with hybrid capabilities. Integration with Azure Arc enables you to automatically deploy applications and connect on-premises applications to Azure services, such as Azure Policy and Azure Monitor. Manage Windows Server in Azure VMs One of the fastest ways to extend to the cloud is with Windows Admin Center, a free download available with your Windows Server license. Windows Admin Center enables you to easily connect to Azure for monitoring, storage, backup, disaster recovery, and more. Windows Admin Center is also available in the Azure portal (preview) to help you manage the Windows Server OS running in Azure VMs seamlessly and at a granular level.
