Kicking the Tires of Azure Arc

Microsoft has crossed the multi-cloud on-prem, hybrid, and public cloud management barriers with an offering announced at last years Ignite conference called Azure Arc. This new solution extends Azure Resource Manager to proactively manage, scale, and deploy distributed workloads, servers, and containers from a single management point in Azure. We will take a look at what Arc is and the preview offerings today, how it works with servers, and run through some demo's using various scenarios and examples. Join me to take the new Azure Arc for a test drive!
