Omaha Azure User Group Meeting – July 2020 – 1

The first bi-weekly meeting for the month of July 2020 took place on Wednesday, July, 8th, starting at 12:00 PM CDT.=

Topic: Manage and govern your hybrid servers using Azure Arc
Thomas Maurer shows you how you can manage and govern your Windows and Linux machines hosted outside of Azure on your corporate network or other cloud providers, similarly to how you manage native Azure virtual machines. When a hybrid machine is connected to Azure, it becomes a connected machine and is treated as a resource in Azure. Azure Arc provides you with the familiar cloud-native Azure management experience, like RBAC, Tags, Azure Policy, Log Analytics, and more.
