Why Microsoft’s Azure Arc Is A ‘Value Proposition’

‘When you think about what we’re doing versus what our competition or what other vendors are doing, we provide the most flexible solution -- bar none,’ said Arpan Shah, the general manager leading Microsoft’s product marketing for Azure infrastructure.

Customer Use Cases

Africa’s Talking, a Nairobi, Kenya-based company that provides mobile voice and messaging and payment APIs for large organizations and developers across Africa and the Middle East, is an Azure Arc customer.

In the past, the company was updating its applications in a more manual way, but with Azure Arc, it’s able to effectively containerize its applications and deploy them around Africa and the Middle East very quickly and efficiently, according to Shah.

“Having all these diverse infrastructures in different locations and being able to deploy their applications and manage and update them very quickly, has been a huge value-add for Africa’s Talking,” he said.

Erlangen, Germany-based Siemens Healthineers, a medical technology company that develops applications for scanners and other hospital machines, also is an Azure Arc customer.

“They had new algorithms that could help detect COVID symptoms,” Shah explained. “Using Kubernetes and Azure Arc, they were able to very quickly develop these applications and deploy them across thousands of sites. And with Arc, they can govern and update these applications really, really efficiently. What used to take them a long time across all this diverse infrastructure, they’re able to do a lot more efficiently with Azure Arc.”

Ferguson, a wholesale distributor of plumbing supplies based in Newport News, Va., is another Azure Arc customer.

“They have a lot of data centers, where they have different types of servers, whether that’s Windows Server, Linux server, or they’re using SQL Server,” Shah said. “They’re using Azure Arc to kind of organize their estates across their hybrid environments, so they can govern and manage these all with Azure Arc and (get) tons of efficiency in cloud management across all their environments.”
