If you’re a Microsoft Partner, and you currently sell/deploy, or are thinking about selling/deploying either System Center Essentials 2010, or Data Protection Manager 2010 into mid-size businesses, then Redmond Channel Partner Magazine have published a very useful 8-page document that may just be up your street.  It’s got a wide range of information, along with a number of interviews with key stakeholders in the technology, such as David Mills, Senior Product Manager, Jason Buffington, Senior Technical Product Manager, and Dave Sobel, CEO of Evolve Technologies to name but  a few.  There’s also a 2 page interview with Zane Adam, a General Manager for Virtualisation at Microsoft, who shares his thoughts on virtualisation and management in the mid-market, and how Microsoft can deliver the integrated IT solution to address the challenges seen by businesses in this segment.
