Just a quick blog post for now.  The TechNet Edge video site just posted a video blog that David Mills and I did, with a preview of the new System Center Essentials (SCE) 2010 Beta.  What’s really exciting about SCE 2010 is that in addition to the existing great Small and Medium Business (SMB) systems management capabilities of SCE, SCE 2010 now includes the virtualization management capabilities of Virtual Machine Manager.

That means that SMB customers and can soon buy one product that has software deployment, systems updates, monitoring and virtualization management, all in one tool designed for mid-sized businesses.  For more information on SCE 2010, check out the SCE website.
