As we move from the Release Candidate to the final SCE product, we want to make sure that Microsoft Partners are ready to help our customers with the latest in systems management from Microsoft. 

SCE 2010 is one of two System Center products that will be released next quarter, so we are running a “Partner Readiness Week”.   Customers, don’t worry – we have readiness activities planned for you as well.  Over the week of February 22-26, we will 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 to unified disk-, tape- and cloud-based storage.

We will offer the courses a few times in the upcoming weeks – optimized for different time zones and geographies.   Feb 22-26 are being delivered during the European business day. 

For access to the 5 courses associated with SCE and DPM – please go to the Microsoft Partner Learning Center and search for keyword SCELMITLLC.
