If you have not been to the System Center products landing page in a while, then you have not seen the new look. One of the first things you will see is the “Microsoft Server and Cloud Platform” branding at the top of the page. While System Center Virtual Machine Manager provides the core base of virtualization management for what happens in the Microsoft Private cloud stack, all of the System Center products have something to offer to make installing, managing, and monitoring your private cloud as seamless and painless as possible.

You will also notice in the center as you scroll down that there are links to the current beta release versions of the System Center products. here you can find links to the 2012 beta for Operation manager, Orchestrator, Virtual Machine Manager and Configuration Manager. I highly recommend that you start with SCVMM2012 to get familiar with the new interface and capabilities. Then move on to Configuration Manager and Operations Manager for change management and monitoring. Finally, grab Orchestrator for process automation.
