Microsoft Expands System Center Suite
The System Center portfolio has three
as of today: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System
Center Data Protection Manager 2007 and System Center Virtual Machine Manager
Aside from doing all kinds cool management stuff, these products come with
one simple license that will allow a customer to buy and run them all at once.
Eric Berg, director of product management for the Windows and Enterprise Management
Division at Microsoft, told RCPU last week that "if you're buying any two of
these products, you're better off purchasing the server management suite."
By suite, he means all three products, of course.
Partners, take note: This sounds like an attempt by Redmond to simplify licensing,
at least in one area -- and simplification of licensing is something you've
been wanting and needing for a long time.
