external Content:

Microsoft is building a new management tool, code-named “Concero,” that will allow customers to oversee both on-premises and cloud-based services.

Microsoft is planning to show off the new member of its System Center product line at the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) 2011 conference in March.

There is a mention of Concero on the MMS Web site agenda, that explains the coming product this way:

The move to cloud based deployment of services will result in deployments which are partly on private on-premise clouds based on VMM and Hyper-V and partly on Windows Azure.
In this hybrid world, it is imperative to have a management tool that allows customers to deploy and manage their services across these environments.
System Center codename “Concero” is a self-service portal targeted at this customer base.”

The Concero tool will allow customers to manage both on-premises Services running on Hyper-V hypervisor and System Center Virtual Machine Manager and off-premises Services running on Windows Azure and Windows Azure Appliances.
Concero will be built on Silverlight, to enable an “access anywhere” experience, according to information on Microsoft’s Web site.
