I’ve always said that a well-managed network is a secure network AND one that makes one’s life easier as an IT Professional. Management tools allow you to proactively monitor your servers and workstations, deploy software, manage configurations and settings across a plethora of devices and even help you transition systems between the physical and virtual worlds , despite what virtualization technology you use.

System Center is our umbrella name for our management products — all of which are about to undergo a massive release in 2012. NOW is the time for you to start getting ready to test out implementation plans and Trial the new versions in your environment. Now is the time to download and install these versions to see how they can make your life easier on the management front. If you haven’t checked out our latest offerings and their capabilities in a while — you will be pleasantly surprized in what’s in the box. When you go ahead and implement — make sure to read the Release notes on these Release Candidate editions — it will indicate if an direct upgrade to RTM will be supported!
