I was going through all the cool stuff the OpsMgr product team has been releasing lately and found a couple R2 related items that I thought I’d mention here. You may have already heard about these but in the past week or so they posted the download for the R2 Release Candidate as well as some info on two new report models that are included:
Operations Manager 2007 R2 introduces key new and enhanced functionality, including: Enhanced application performance and availability across heterogeneous platforms
