I’m pleased to say, that just a few months after the R2 release of System Center Operations Manager R2, and only weeks after the RTM of Windows Server 2008 R2, System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 is here.
I blogged a few weeks back, about the improvements seen from Beta to RC, but now’s the time to get hold of the finished product! So, what’s in there?
System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 (VMM) is a comprehensive management solution for the virtualized datacenter. It enables increased physical server utilization, centralized management of virtual machine infrastructure, and rapid provisioning of new virtual machines by the administrator, delegated administrator, and authorized end users.
VMM 2008 R2 can manage all the platforms managed by VMM 2008 and adds support for Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V. Windows Server 2008 R2 includes significant feature improvements to Hyper-V. VMM 2008 R2 leverages these new platform enhancements and extends the feature set of VMM 2008.
