Today’s datacenter is no longer a stagnant, homogeneous environment with physical servers and a single operating system. Modern datacenters are heterogeneous environments with dynamic workloads, shifting demand, and constant change. Meeting the demands of the business requires automation. Leveraging System Center Orchestrator and Virtual Machine Manager, SWC helps organizations automate the processes required to meet the requirements of the business. Instead of taking several manual steps to create a virtual machine, using System Center an administrator can leverage templates and runbooks to automate virtual machine provisioning. Automating datacenter processes speeds delivery, prevents errors, and allows the business to meet changing demands.
System Center enables cross-platform and hybrid infrastructure management. Using Virtual Machine Manager, IT can provision and manage Windows Server and Linux virtual machines in a local datacenter or in the Azure cloud. Virtual Machine Manager also allows cross-platform hypervisor management so IT can manage Hyper-V environments along with VMware infrastructure.
Microsoft System Center can help organizations simplify and automate IT compliance and risk management processes.
