Published Nov 16 2023 02:50 AM 781 Views

We’re excited to announce that System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) enabled by Azure Arc is now generally available to manage SCVMM resources in Azure. 

With SCVMM enabled by Azure Arc, you can: 

  • Enable Azure services at scale to govern, protect, configure, and monitor your SCVMM VMs 
  • Procure Extended Security Updates (ESUs) for your Windows Server 2012 and 2012R2 machines running on SCVMM managed estate
  • Discover and onboard existing SCVMM managed VMs to Azure.
  • Browse your SCVMM resources (VMs, templates, VM networks, and storage) in Azure, providing you with a single pane view for your infrastructure across both environments.
  • Empower developers and application teams to self-serve VM operations on demand using Azure role-based access control (RBAC).
  • Perform various VM lifecycle operations such as start, stop, pause, and delete VMs on SCVMM managed VMs directly from Azure.

With the recent release of SCVMM 2022 Update Rollup 2, the Azure Arc tab gives guidance to get started with your Arc journey by deploying Azure Arc Resource Bridge and to use Azure Management services based on your requirement.
