GearsCameron Fuller, a System Center: Cloud and Datacenter Management MVP, just published a great post about the integration of Azure and System Center. As we start to see new features in both solutions, it begins to make the sum greater than the individual parts. Examples of these integrations include backup to the cloud in DPM, cloud-based distribution points in Configuration Manager and Global Service Monitor in Operations Manager. In this blog post, the first in a series Cameron is putting together, he discusses how to use Azure to provide a cost effective solution to monitor Windows servers regardless of their location or domain membership through the introduction of Azure Monitoring Gateway (AMGW).
