Beta for System Center 2012 SP1 is available for download!


As the title of this posting suggests – or rather says flat out – the beta of System Center 2012 SP1 is available for your downloading and testing/trying pleasure.

“Why?  What do I need an SP1 for?  Didn’t System Center 2012 just come out earlier this year?”

Absolutely.  But what has since been released?

Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.”

Right.  And does System Center 2012 support managing Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8?

“Does it?”

No.  At least not fully.  And as you are probably already aware by now, there are a lot of new capabilities that it would be nice to manage along with the rest.  So the service pack will add that functionality.  For example: Virtual Machine Manager can handle new options for migrations.  Plus create and manage virtual “VM” networks.

Get it HERE!
