Standardise your Systems and save money with Microsoft System Centre 2012.

Microsoft System Centre 2012 enables end-to-end automation within IT environments allowing a private cloud solution and delivering IT as a service. Microsoft System Center 2012 is a cost effective and flexible platform for managing data centres and enabling a true private cloud.

Application packaging (also known as software packaging) is a process used by organisations to standardise the installation of a piece of software to one or more computers allowing for rapid deployment, upgrades and the consistent installation of software. Application packaging delivers costs savings by allowing you to reduce the number of onsite and backend support personnel required to deliver, maintain and support software applications in your environment.

Microsoft System Centre 2012 infrastructure management includes -

  • Configuration Manager lets you deploy software to employee’s devices and computers, inventory their hardware, push out OS / software updates as well as deploy operating systems to bare metal computers.
  • Virtual Machine Manager manages your fabric infrastructure for virtualization: hosts, clusters and networks from the bare metal to the ultimate induction into private clouds.
  • Operations Manager keeps an eye on your servers (physical and virtual), OS (Windows and Unix / Linux), applications (All Microsoft, many, many third party and Java application servers) and your networks through Microsoft and third party management packs that contain knowledge about each component.
  • Data Protection Manager is the best backup product for Microsoft’s workloads, following supported processes to backup from disk to disk, disk to tape, disk to disk to tape as well as disk to disk to cloud.
  • Orchestrator integrates and links the other components through automation. Via a Visio like interface Activities are linked together into runbooks that can then automate IT processes on demand; runbooks can be started from a web interface or from service manager or any other product that talks to the new Orchestrator Web Service.
  • Service Manager is a help desk system for tracking incidents, change requests, service requests and configuration management in a central Configuration Management Database (CMDB). There’s also a Data Warehouse server that manages long term storage of data, not just from Service Manager but from all the System Centre 2012 products, data is brought into Service Manager through connectors to AD, Virtual Machine Manager.
  • Endpoint Protection is Microsoft’s business anti-malware solution that’s integrated into Configuration Manager. This means that the distribution of the application is done through the normal model in Configuration Manager (either as part of new OS deployments or as a distributed program after OS installation) as well as all the signature updates.
  • App Controller is an end-user / application owner focused web portal that lets you see Virtual Machine Manager, private clouds and services deployed in them as well as Windows Azure public cloud services and monitor, scale out and scale in these services.
