About Arc-enabled System Center Virtual Machine Manager

Azure Arc-enabled System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) empowers System Center customers to connect their VMM environment to Azure and perform VM self-service operations from the Azure portal. With Azure Arc-enabled SCVMM, you get consistent management experience across Azure.

Azure Arc-enabled System Center Virtual Machine Manager allows you to manage your Hybrid environment and perform self-service VM operations through Azure portal. For Microsoft Azure Pack customers, this solution is intended as an alternative to perform VM self-service operations.

Arc-enabled System Center VMM allows you to:

  • Perform various VM lifecycle operations such as start, stop, pause, and delete VMs on VMM managed VMs directly from Azure.

  • Empower developers and application teams to self-serve VM operations on-demand using Azure role-based access control (RBAC).

  • Browse your VMM resources (VMs, templates, VM networks, and storage) in Azure, providing you with a single pane view for your infrastructure across both environments.

  • Discover and onboard existing SCVMM managed VMs to Azure.
