Azure Automation Hybrid Worker Extension for Azure and Arc machines is coming soon
Published date: August 06, 2021
Azure Automation is releasing native integration of Hybrid Workers through VM extensions for both Windows and Linux Azure VMs through Azure Agent for Azure & non-Azure machines through Arc for Server agent.
An extension-based approach of onboarding hybrid workers would offer you some key benefits, such as:
- Seamless onboarding of Azure and non Azure (Arc) machines – Removing the dependency on Log Analytics solution for onboarding hybrid workers which is a multi-step process, time consuming, and error-prone.
- Ease of manageability– Providing the flexibility for governance at scale through policies and templates by providing a native integration with ARM identity for Hybrid Workers.
