Looks like the good folks over on the System Center Essentials Team Blog posted an article about our Partners Readiness Week where we'll be providing 5 online training sessions to prepare Microsoft Partners to be successful with the next generation of System Center, including:
System Center Essentials (SCE) 2010 offers enterprise-class management to midsized organizations with between 50-500 PCs and up to 50 servers, including physical and virtual machine management.
System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 provides continuous data protection for Windows application and file servers, desktops, laptops and Microsoft Virtualization hosts
And if you're not an official Microsoft Partner don't worry because there are readiness events planned for you too. for all the details see the following site:
