In this video, I had the chance to speak with Lior Kamrat (Senior Program Manager at Microsoft) about how to get centralized visibility & organization on all your customers and locations (hybrid and multicloud) with Azure Lighthouse and Azure Arc.



What is Azure Lighthouse?

Azure Lighthouse enables multi-tenant management with scalability, higher automation, and enhanced governance across resources.

With Azure Lighthouse, service providers can deliver managed services using comprehensive and robust tooling built into the Azure platform. Customers maintain control over who has access to their tenant, which resources they can access, and what actions can be taken. This offering can also benefit enterprise IT organizations managing resources across multiple tenants.

Cross-tenant management experiences lets you work more efficiently with Azure services like Azure Policy, Azure Sentinel, Azure Arc, and many more. Users can see what changes were made and by whom in the activity log, which is stored in the customer's tenant (and can be viewed by users in the managing tenant).

Manage hybrid infrastructure at scale with Azure Arc

Azure Lighthouse can help service providers use Azure Arc to manage customers' hybrid environments, with visibility across all managed Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) tenants.

Azure Arc helps simplify complex and distributed environments across on-premises, edge and multicloud, enabling deployment of Azure services anywhere and extending Azure management to any infrastructure.

With Azure Arc–enabled servers, customers can manage any Windows and Linux machines hosted outside of Azure on their corporate network, in the same way they manage native Azure virtual machines. By linking a hybrid machine to Azure, it becomes connected and is treated as a resource in Azure. Service providers can then manage these non-Azure machines along with their customers' Azure resources.

Azure Arc–enabled Kubernetes lets customers attach and configure Kubernetes clusters inside or outside of Azure. When a Kubernetes cluster is attached to Azure Arc, it will appear in the Azure portal, with an Azure Resource Manager ID and a managed identity. Clusters are attached to standard Azure subscriptions, are located in a resource group, and can receive tags just like any other Azure resource.
