Episode 106: Microsoft Cloud & Hosting Partner Monthly Online Meeting | Azure Lighthouse, Azure Arc, News and Technical Hints

Before looking at details for our January 2020 Online Meeting I’d like to take a moment to remind you of a couple of Licensing webinars run by the Licensing School.  Firstly, the CSP Spotlight that was run on December 12.  And the second webinar is a Licensing Update run on December 18.  The team at the Licensing School do a fabulous job each month really simplifying the various licensing options and progress of CSP.  You can register to watch the recordings for both or either by clicking on the dates above which are linked to the registration site.


Further, and more accolades to the Licensing School, they have just released a “New Commerce in CSP for Azure” 13 part series via http://aka.ms/csp/azuremodules.  All the modules are very short and none are more than 8 minutes. 


And now to our January Online Meeting in which the focus will be “Azure Lighthouse” and “Azure Arc”.  As always, the online meeting will also cover the latest licensing and program news, and look at forthcoming online and in person events in the “News, Views and Venues” segment. 




Licensing Updates

What’s new in SPLA, CSP and changes to licensing plus a look at Recently Asked Questions. 

Azure Lighthouse and Azure Arc

Azure Lighthouse was released in July 2019 at Inspire in Las Vegas and since then has developed rapidly to enable Managed Service Providers to more effectively monitor, manage and control customer resources.  And announced at Ignite in November 2019 was Azure Arc.  Azure Arc is in preview and looks to offer huge potential for extending monitoring, management, provisioning and more across Azure, Azure Stack, on-premise servers and even other Cloud platforms.
