At MMS 2010 and the Worldwide Partner conference, we articulated our holistic datacenter-to-cloud strategy. Specifically: a) How Microsoft's Server platform and Services platform uniquely enable delivering IT as a Service on your own terms - out of your own datacenter, service provider datacenters or Microsoft's own datacenters b) Microsoft uniquely provides a single set of familiar management, identity and developer tools that span across all your datacenter environments - traditional, private or public clouds - thereby allowing you to optimally build/operate applications for hybrid cloud environments.
System Center is integral to our Server platform and provides a single set of management tools to bridge the gap across your physical, virtual and cloud datacenter environments. So as you can see, System Center is front and center to our datacenter-to-cloud approach. Great, you may think. How can System Center help me solve today's datacenter management challenges while providing clear line of sight to the cloud? Is Microsoft shipping some of the above mentioned capabilities so we can start taking advantage of them? Can System Center help me build on top of my current investments? The answer to all of these questions is an unequivocal "yes". Let's see how.
We recently released our in-focus dynamic datacenter management solutions to address these questions:
As you can see, there's a lot of exciting stuff you can do today to solve your core datacenter management challenges while accelerating your journey to the cloud. What's more, these solutions build on top of the Microsoft technologies that your organization uses already!
