<<Provision for Partner Logo>>
Dear <<insert customer name>>,
On January 17th, Microsoft announced a major new development in the Microsoft private cloud strategy and core management platform, the launch of Microsoft System Center 2012. System Center 2012 allows you to manage your virtual, physical, and cloud environments from a single console, using common and consistent experiences that provide full control across your existing datacenter investments.
Optimized for service delivery and providing both flexibility and control, the Microsoft private cloud enables you to experience IT as a Service on your terms. Adopting a more service-driven IT model can help you provision services faster—freeing up resources and enabling greater business agility to respond quickly to customer demands.
As part of the System Center 2012 release, Microsoft is simplifying how you purchase and gain access to the economic benefits of the cloud by offering two editions:
With these streamlined purchasing options and enhanced private cloud capabilities, we are also announcing changes in the licensing and pricing of System Center 2012.
- System Center 2012 Standard Edition, for managing environments with no or low density virtualization
- System Center 2012 Datacenter Edition, for managing high density virtualization environments
I wanted to alert you to these changes and extend an invitation to get together and review your needs and future plans. I will be contacting you in the next few weeks to set up a meeting.
In the meantime, you can learn more about the Microsoft private cloud website and the exciting new features in System Center 2012 at the Microsoft private cloud website. For any further questions, please refer to the FAQ or contact me directly at xxxx or xxxx.
