System Center 2012 helps you manage your IT environments across traditional datacenters, private and public clouds, client computers, and devices. System Center 2012 captures and aggregates knowledge about systems, policies, processes, and best practices so that you can optimize your infrastructure to reduce costs, improve application availability, and enhance service delivery.
One of the unique differentiations for System Center 2012 is the ability to deliver flexible and cost-effective infrastructure using what you already own. System Center 2012 enables this by:
- Managing different hypervisors centrally from a single pane of glass with support for Windows Server Hyper-V, VMware vSphere, and Citrix XenServer.
- Monitoring Windows Server, Sun Solaris, and various Linux and Unix distributions.
- Integrating toolsets from HP, CA, BMC, EMC, and VMware into automated workflows.
In this whitepaper, we explore System Center 2012 support for managing VMware environments.
