Data Center

Microsoft System Center 2012

Hallelujah to Microsoft for finally seeing the bigger picture. The company this year unveiled System Center 2012, which not only reduces the number of licensing options associated with its server tools from more than a hundred to just two, it also can recognize and manage multiple servers at once. A new Dashboard shows servers of different types listed in a tree style view with simple step-by-step configuration setup steps and a pane for servers listed by role and group.

A foolproof interface is also presented for configuring servers, adding roles, finding other servers to manage and combining machines for management as a group. Servers, server groups and other manageable resources are displayed as tiles with stats about each resource’s major functions. Resources in need of administrator attention and/or action are highlighted in red and are easy to spot. Drilling into a stat presents a dialog box listing those events, services or alerts.
