MMS Press Announcements

If you are not at the MMS like Stefan and myself then you can check out all the press announcements at

Microsoft give the press the news but they are not allowed to publish until the keynote is finished but you can read the press announcement for the speech at

Key points

  • Public beta for System Center Operations Manager 2007 Cross Platform Extensions (out of the box for HP-UX, Read Hat, Solaris and SUSE)
  • Working with OpenPegasus – Pegasus is an open-source implementation of the DMTF CIM and WBEM standards.
  • Beta of the updated System Center Operations Manager 2007 Connectors
  • Public beta of System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 (formerly code-named “Virtual Machine Manager vNext”)

The rest of the press releases are customer stories.

So the good news is the beefing up of support for heterogeneous systems – both managing and connecting. VNext of SCVMM was already known. So nothing big to announce as these are all betas which I thought might be the case. It will now be interesting to see if the partners announce something big. I will be commentating on the implications of the announcements in future posts.

And the new funky look for the System Center web site (marketing – not technical) is now live
