Azure Arc Jumpstart Lightning Azure Arc-enabled servers metadata tags with Thomas Maurer

I am happy to let you know that I was able to join as a guest on Lior Kamrat video series called Azure Arc Jumpstart Lightning. In this Azure Arc Jumpstart Lightning video, I am talking about multicloud server management and how you can store metadata information in Azure Tags from AWS and GCP virtual machine instances using Azure Arc-enabled servers.

You can check out the episode right here:

Azure Arc Jumpstart

Get started with the Azure Arc Jumpstart Project

Yesterday the team announced the new Azure Arc Jumpstart project. We all have been there, and you want to try out some new Azure services for a proof of concept (PoC) or a quick demo. Thanks to the automation using Azure Resource Manager templates, it is pretty easy and fast to deploy and tries most of the new Azure services. However, when it comes to services for hybrid cloud environments, where you can try services like Azure Arc, things can be more difficult because you have some prerequisites. The Azure Arc Jumpstart project is there to help with that!

The Azure Arc Jumpstart project is designed to provide a “zero to hero” experience so you can start working with Azure Arc right away. It provides step-by-step scenarios, which allow you to go through independent scenarios that incorporate as much automation as possible, detailed screenshots and code samples, and an overall rich and comprehensive experience while getting started with the Azure Arc platform. The goal is for you to have a working Azure Arc environment spun-up in no time so you can focus on the core values of the platform, regardless of where your infrastructure may be, either on-premises or in the cloud.

Azure Arc Jumpstart Scenarios

The Azure Arc Jumpstart project currently supports the following scenarios.

Azure Arc enabled servers

The deployment scenarios in this section will guide you through onboarding various Windows and Linux server distributions as Azure Arc enabled servers.

Azure Arc enabled SQL Server

The deployment scenarios in this section will guide you through onboarding Microsoft SQL Server as an Azure Arc enabled SQL server.

Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes

The deployment scenarios in this section will guide you through onboarding various Kubernetes distributions as an Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes clusters.

Azure Arc enabled data services

The deployment scenarios in this section will guide you through deploying and working with Azure Arc enabled data services on multiple infrastructure platforms.

These scenarios will help you to super easily set up an environment.

Conclusion

The Azure Arc Jumpstart project is a great way of trying different hybrid cloud scenarios with Azure Arc. I used it to build a couple of different demo environments in a very fast and automated way. I hope this blog post provides you an overview of the Azure Arc Jumpstart project. If you have any question feel free to leave a comment below.
