More announcements ...
With the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day upon us, today, we are very pleased to announce the release of ConfigMgr 2007 R3 Beta. Power management is at the core of the ConfigMgr 2007 R3 release, and addresses the need that many organizations have to monitor and reduce both power consumption and CO2 emissions. R3 Power Management leverages the power management features built into Windows to apply relevant and consistent settings to computers in the organization.
There are three major components to power management in R3:
In addition to Power Management, R3 will deliver enhancements to Scale and Performance. In the scale area, R3 shifts the number of supported clients to 300,000 per site. With respect to performance, R3 will provide improvements to AD Discovery with a new feature called Delta Active Directory Discovery. When combined with an additional new feature called Dynamic Collection addition, Administrators will able to significantly reduce the time it takes to reflect AD changes, and Collection updates. Finally, R3 delivers a new capability to OS Deployment, called Prestaged Media. This will allow organizations to package their OS boot and install WIM image components into 1 common image, that can be provided to their hardware vendor, or supplier. This feature builds on top of existing Task Sequence technology, and integrates fully with OS deployment capabilities.
We would love to see you download and experience the beta of Configuration Manager 2007 R3. You can find access to this download here.
