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.

The components of System Center 2012 R2 include:

  • Operations Manager (SCOM 2012): An advanced solution for monitoring the health, performance, and availability of computers, devices, applications and services across multiple on premises and remote datacenters, including private and public Clouds
  • Configuration Manager (SCCM 2012): A centralized solution for change and configuration management for Microsoft and other platforms
  • Data Protection Manager (SCDPM 2012): A backup and recovery solution for Microsoft workloads including Files and Folders, Exchange Server, SQL Server, Virtual Machine Manager, SharePoint, Hyper-V, and client computers

  • Orchestrator (formerly Opalis): A workflow management solution for automating the creation, monitoring, and deployment of datacenter resources
Smaller businesses typically use only a subset of System Center tools, while larger enterprises and service providers may use all components, but System Center's ability to manage on-premises, Cloud-based and hybrid environments allows organizations of any size to realize immediate business value and to scale seamlessly as their needs evolve. Progent has more than a decade of experience integrating and supporting the core components of System Center and can help you plan, deploy, maintain, and troubleshoot your System Center 2012 R2 ecosystem to optimize your applications and workloads through their lifecycles across Windows Server and Windows Azure environments. Progent can help you migrate to the latest version of System Center from earlier releases or from other IT management solutions to provide the benefits of enterprise-class provisioning, automation, self-service, security and compliance, plus infrastructure and application performance monitoring.

Progent offers additional services to bolster the availability, performance, and security of your network by providing online and onsite access to Cisco-certified CCIE network consultants to assist you to design and build advanced network infrastructure that is economical, expandable, easy to manage, responsive, resilient, and secure.
