Join David M. Franklyn for an in-depth discussion in this video System Center 2016 product roadmap, part of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager Essential Training.
- [Instructor] System Center 2016 delivers a simplified data center management experience to keep you in control of your IT, whether on premises, in the cloud, or across platforms. It builds on the experience and depth of the previous version and extends capabilities with Microsoft Operations Management Suite to give you visibility and control of data and applications that live across multiple systems from a single solution. Now, System Center 2016 is a configuration of six applications for managing the Enterprise with on premise management systems.
The System Center consists of the Configuration Manager, the System Center Data Protection Manager, also known as DPM, the System Center Orchestrator, the System Center Operations Manager, sometimes called just Operations Manager or SCOM, the System Center Service Manager, also known as SCSM, and the System Center Virtual Machine Manager or VMM. The applications in the System Center Suite interact with each other with each application focused on an aspect of Enterprise management.
Licensing for System Center 2016 allows for two editions of the System Center, the Standard and the Datacenter product. With the Standard version, you can have two virtual machines per license for each one of the products. For the System Center Datacenter option, the licensing for virtual machines is unlimited, you can have as many as you need. You can purchase System Center licensing for client management in a variety of packages.
When you license System Center you have the right to run the SQL Server Standard edition for free, which supports System Center products.
