Starting today, there’s no limit to the number of Azure Arc-enabled servers you can add to a resource group! We listened to your feedback and understood that the previous limit of 5,000 servers per resource group didn’t always align with your existing organizational schemes for hybrid and multicloud servers. With this change, you can choose to use a single onboarding script to connect every server to the same resource group, without worrying about partitioning large deployments across multiple resource groups.
Looking to get started with a large deployment of Azure Arc-enabled servers? Take a look at the Azure Arc Landing Zone Accelerator to prepare for the deployment, then consider our at-scale onboarding guidance to configure the servers using your automation tooling of choice:
- Automatically connect and secure AWS and GCP virtual machines with Microsoft Defender for Cloud
- Deploy with Ansible, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, or Group Policy
- Roll your own deployment with a customizable onboarding script
Don’t see your favorite automation tooling above? Let us know in the comments so we can continue to improve our at-scale onboarding experience.
