Announcing Microsoft System Center 2012
Happy New Year! We hope you had a good holiday and are excited to continue our strong partnership in 2012. This is the year of the private cloud and we look forward to talking with you about the Microsoft Private Cloud.
Microsoft is firmly committed to the success of cloud computing. As proof of that commitment, we have announced the launch of new systems management software optimized for the cloud: Microsoft System Center 2012.
