Hi everyone,

In case you missed it at the end of last year, there is a new free ebook out from Microsoft Press for IT Pros!

Written by Mitch Tulloch with Symon Perriman and the System Center Team, the Introducing Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Technical Overview can be downloaded here. Depending on how you prefer to read, you can download it as a PDF, Mobi file or ePub file. And there’s no sign in or account set up required.

As Kim Spilker explains,

“Whether you are new to System Center or are already using it in your business, this book has something that should interest you. The capabilities of each component of System Center 2012 R2 are first described and then demonstrated chapter by chapter. Real-world and under-the-hood insights are also provided by insiders at Microsoft who live and breathe System Center, and those of you who are experienced with the platform will benefit from the wisdom and experience of these experts. We also included a list of additional resources at the end of each chapter where you can learn more about each System Center component.”

Pssst, if you haven’t actually got the System Center 2012 R2 release yet, it is available through the TechNet Evaluation Center for a 180-day trial. Get to it!

Bye for now,

Katherine.
