Book Description

Microsoft System Center 2012 is a comprehensive IT infrastructure, virtualization, and cloud management platform. With System Center 2012, you can easily and efficiently deploy, manage, and monitor a virtualized infrastructure, as well as services and applications across multiple hypervisors. This can also be done across public and private cloud infrastructures to deliver flexible and cost-effective IT services for your business.

This book will take you through a series of recipes to streamline your System Center VMM architecture. Each section has been discreetly designed to help you simplify, plan, and deploy a highly scalable, high availability virtual infrastructure. The first few sections take you through the design and installation of System Center 2012 R2 VMM and Windows 2012 Hyper-V R2 features. Network virtualization, storage integration, and bare metal deployment are also covered in this book.
