System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Release Candidate RELEASED!!!
with a common management toolset for your private and public cloud applications
and services. System Center helps you confidently deliver IT as a Service for
your business. Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Release Candidate (RC) is key to
delivering the promise of the System Center 2012 release. Virtual Machine

allocate virtualized datacenter resources (compute, network, and storage)
enabling self-service infrastructure experience for your business, with flexible
role based delegation and access control.
datacenter applications with techniques like service modeling, service
configuration and image based management. You can also state-separate your
applications and services from the underlying infrastructure using server

management where you manage the application or service lifecycle and not just
datacenter infrastructure or virtual machines.
multi-hypervisor environments, including Hyper-V, Xen and VMware.
workload demands, while ensuring reliable service delivery with features like
workloads like Exchange and Sharepoint.
