Today, we are excited to announce that the new features and capabilities that you have seen in the Windows Intune beta will be commercially available on October 17th, 2011. If you have a paid subscription in the Windows Intune service, your account information and your data will be upgraded to the new service within a short time after it becomes commercially available. Keep an eye on the Windows Intune Administrative console notification area for more details about when your account will be upgraded. There is no action required on your part, your account will be automatically upgraded, as will any Windows Intune clients you have deployed. Additional information on what is included in this new release can be found on the Windows For Your Business Blog.
We’d like to thank all of you who have participated in the beta release. Your feedback and insights have been invaluable in helping us create a high quality, reliable service and in planning for future releases of Windows Intune. Please note that the beta service will conclude a short time after October 17th, and all data will be deleted. After this date, you will be able to sign up for a trial of the new Windows Intune service, or purchase subscription by visiting the Microsoft Online Customer Portal.
I'm impressed with the release schedule for Intune and the amount of features you guys are able to pump out. Should we expect the pace to continue?
It's our goal to maintain a rapid release cycle, as one would expect from an online service.
