Last week at TechEd 2013 North America, we announced System Center 2012 R2 – the next major release of System Center! And, while each of the System Center components has significant updates planned in this R2 release, I was really impressed with the end-to-end Private Cloud fabric, VM and service management enhancements in Virtual Machine Manager.
