Generally available: Azure Automanage for Azure Virtual Machines and Arc-enabled servers
Published date: October 12, 2022
Azure Automanage is now generally available for Azure Virtual Machines and Arc-enabled servers. Azure Automanage is a service that automates configuration of virtual machines (VMs) to best-practice Azure services, as well as continuous security and management operations across the entire lifecycle of VMs in Azure or hybrid environments enabled through Azure Arc. This allows you to save time, reduce risk, and improve workload uptime by automating day-to-day configuration and management tasks– all with point-and-click simplicity, at scale.
We have added new capabilities to further automate configuration and management of any virtual machine, including:
- Applying enhanced backup settings and different auditing modes for the compute server baselines.
- Specifying custom Log Analytics workspace and Azure tags to identify resources based on settings relevant to an organization.
- Support for Windows 10 virtual machines.
- Support for enabling Microsoft Antimalware.
