At Microsoft’s recent annual Ignite conference, it was announced that a product known as Azure Arc was to be launched which would change the landscape of the public cloud…

Azure Arc will enable customers to understand and realise the benefits of up-to-date data capabilities and dynamic scalability on any infrastructure. Customers will now have the flexibility to deploy Azure SQL Database and Azure Database for PostgreSQL Hyperscale where they need it.

From the Azure portal, customers will be able to view all their Azure data services running across both on-premise and cloud infrastructures and can apply consistent policy, security and governance of data across all environments. Customers will also get limitless scale by seamlessly spinning up additional Kubernetes clusters in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) if they run out of capacity on-premise.
These set of technologies will unlock new hybrid scenarios for customers by bringing Azure services and management to any infrastructure. Today, Azure Arc is only available in preview mode.
