Bursting your application across clouds
Accelerating deployment of your workloads
System Center provides best-of-breed Windows Server and workload monitoring. You can assure physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure health with the familiar Operations Manager console. Built-in network topology discovery enables you to monitor the health of your network devices and virtual network. Seamless integration between components enables granular monitoring of your private cloud infrastructure resources. Optimise storage performance for your business-critical workloads by effectively managing Windows Server file-based storage and Storage Spaces. Monitor your Microsoft Azure resources, both IaaS and many Azure components. Extend your monitor to VMware infrastructure with the VEEAM Management Pack. Access robust cross-platform monitoring with support for RHEL/SUSE Linux, Oracle Solaris, HP-UX, and IBM AIX.
Azure Operational Insights is software as a service (SaaS) tailored for IT operations teams that integrates seamlessly into System Center Operations Manager environments, working with workloads no matter where they are located. Enable operations teams to effortlessly collect, store and analyze log data from virtually any Windows Server source, regardless of volume, format or location. Access real-time operational intelligence with improved troubleshooting, operational visibility and fast search to explore, investigate and fix incidents quickly. Interact with real-time and historical machine data, including ready-made intelligence packs to rapidly develop actionable insights.
System Center helps you manage virtual and cloud environments with full support for Windows Server capabilities and robust support for Linux-based environments, including industry-leading Hyper-V scale and performance, extended to VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer. System Center enables VM connectivity to many storage solutions, including fibre channel-based SANs, and Windows File Server-based solutions, so you can virtualise the most demanding workloads. To drive down costs, it enables bare metal provisioning and cluster creation of scale-out file server clusters, and host servers. System Center also enables virtual networking for multitenant environments along with automated provisioning of edge gateways that bridge physical and virtual networks. It delivers reliable and cost-effective workflow to help you drive automated and template-driven provisioning, and can also migrate on-premises workloads to Microsoft Azure through rich self-service tools. For both datacentre and client environments, it extends provisioning with automated physical server deployments, software inventory, and in-guest updates.
Use service templates for faster and repeatable application and workload provisioning—for example, to define and deploy a SharePoint farm for use by application owners. With the Azure Pack, deploy scalable, infrastructure-as-a-service, and platform-as-a-service environments with ease, enabling application owners by defining the policies that govern the underlying infrastructure services, empowering end users, while retaining control. Ensure hybrid IT consistency between on-premises and Microsoft Azure environments by providing unified views, and support for common deployment artifacts such as VHDs for Windows Server and Linux. System Center also enables dynamic capacity expansion to support application needs through robust automation workflows and Integration Packs.
System Center assures LOB application SLAs by providing deep application insight for .NET and Java applications, including line-of-code level traceability to pinpoint and resolve issues that impact application health. Achieve a rapid application lifecycle by delivering dev-ops capabilities that span people, process, and systems. Deep Visual Studio-System Center integration makes it possible for developers to work productively with their operations counterparts in a cloud-optimised release cadence. System Center Global Service Monitor gives you outside-in monitoring for web applications through Microsoft Azure-based global points of presence for a 360-degree view of application health.
System Center offers easy publishing and consumption of IT services by enabling self-service requests for private cloud capacity through a consistent service catalog. Get deep integration of people, process and knowledge with a CMDB as well as pre-defined industry-standard workflows for core datacentre processes. Measure and increase efficiencies of your operation through granular resource metering for chargeback combined with a data warehouse for SLA tracking and reporting.
