Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012

Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 (SCVMM 2012) is Microsoft's virtualization management product. It is part of the System Center 2012 systems management suite.

With SCVMM 2012, an administrator can configure and manage virtualized environments, including hosts, networking and storage resources. Tasks such as consolidation and conversion of physical machines and rapid provisioning of virtual machines (VMs) can be completed using a central console.

Private clouds are a major focus of SCVMM 2012; administrators can create and delegate them to users, who can then use self-service tools to deploy their own VMs.

Other updates include the ability to create Hyper-V clusters and enhanced power management features. System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 now supports Citrix XenServer in addition to Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere.
