I tend to discuss the MAP tool fairly frequently in meetings with customers as it’s a great – FREE – tool for helping you with planning for migrations and deployments.
In a posting from last Friday the MAP team announced an upcoming open beta of the next version of MAP 3.2.
In a nut shell the new functionality will include:
- SQL Server migration assessment – advanced features including instances inventory and SKU/version identification
- Microsoft Online Services survey-assessments for onboarding/migration
- Green IT/Power Management calculations
- Server virtualization assessments including Host/Guest relationship inventory of existing physical/virtual environments
Follow this link to join the beta MAP Toolkit 3.2 Beta Program today. They plan to release the beta downloads in October 2008.
