​The premise of Azure Arc is compelling: why not extend familiar management tools proven in Azure to on-premises and other cloud networks like VMware and AWS?

Did you know Azure Arc is a disruptive technology that can be considered the next wave in cloud computing?

Early adopters of Azure Arc gain an immediate competitive advantage:

  • 3-year 206% ROI
