Operations Manager 2012 public beta has launched!!!





The next version of OpsMgr has hit the public beta milestone.  This is very exciting as there are a lot of new features in OpsMgr 2012 that I personally cannot wait to get my hands on.


Some key features/changes:

  • Simplified infrastructure – via the removal of the RMS role – allowing for out of the box high availability, removing the single point of failure, easing deployment and management of the infrastructure, all while leveraging commodity hardware.
  • New dashboards allowing you to see much more data about a server or application in a single, quick screen view.
  • Network monitoring – discovery and deep level monitoring of your switches, routers, load balancers, and other network devices.
  • Additions to the capability around application performance monitoring and diagnostics for .NET applications plus JEE application health monitoring
  • Resource pools – A resource pool provides the ability to distribute workloads across multiple management servers, such as availability, network device monitoring, distributed monitor health rollup, and group calculation.


There is a lot more.  Download the beta and start testing it.


How can I get it?
