Introduction to Microsoft System Center 2012 R2
System Center ConsultantsMicrosoft System Center 2012 R2 is a suite of enterprise-class management and reporting tools for streamlining the administration of IT infrastructure ranging from smartphones to virtualized server clusters, application software, and data. Dubbed by Microsoft "the Cloud OS," System Center 2012 R2 is a comprehensive collection of utilities that combine to create a unified, consistent platform for monitoring and controlling IT assets that can span local and remote datacenters, private and public clouds, as well as applications and services hosted on Microsoft Azure. (Learn about Progent's Microsoft Azure planning and cloud integration consulting services.)

Progent can help you manage, tune and troubleshoot your current deployment of System Center 2012 R2 or provide System Center 2016 migration consulting to help you plan and carry out an efficient migration from System Center 2012 R2 2012 to System Center 2016 in order to take advantage of new features that enhance hybrid cloud integration, scale, assurance, disaster recovery, hardware affordability, and management automation.

Components of System Center 2012 R2
System Center is available in a Standard and a Datacenter version. Both versions include all components of System Center, the only functional difference being the amount of virtualization supported.
