Available in a Beta release RIGHT NOW – the next generation of System Center Virtual Machine Manager is now available for download in both 180 Day Eval install or pre-configured VHD install. This gives you a fantastic toolset to manage your virtualization infrastructure (From MULTIPLE vendors – VMWare, Hyper-V and Xen) and start to think and provision like a Private Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering to your organization. This is also our steppingstone to manage both Private and PUBLIC cloud resources for your organization.
Virtual Machine Manager 2012 enables you to:
Deliver flexible and cost-effective Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). You can pool and dynamically allocate virtualized datacenter resources (compute, network, and storage) enabling self-service infrastructure experience for your business, with flexible role-based delegation and access control.
Apply cloud principles to provisioning and servicing your datacenter applications with techniques like service modeling, service configuration, and image-based management. You can also state-separate your applications and services from the underlying infrastructure using server application virtualization. This results in a “service-centric” approach to management where you manage the application or service lifecycle and not just datacenter infrastructure or virtual machines.
Optimize your existing investments by managing multi-hypervisor environments such as Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, and VMware vSphere 4.1 in a single pane of glass.
Dynamic optimization of your datacenter resources based on workload demands, while ensuring reliable service delivery with features like high availability.
Best-of-breed virtualization-management for Microsoft workloads like Exchange and SharePoint.
