System Center Virtual Machine Manager Beta 2 is out

Ever heard of SC VMM?

In short, System Center Virtual Machine Manager provides centralized administration of virtual machine infrastructure and enables increased physical server utilization and rapid provisioning of new virtual machines by the administrator and authorized end users.

This latest version of Virtual Machine Manager – Beta 2 – represents a major step forward in providing IT administrators with a fully featured, easy-to-use and integrated suite of management tools to tackle even the most distributed and complex virtualization migrations.

While the improvements in Beta 2 are too long to list, here is a preview of the major upgrades in this release:

  • Completely new, easy-to-use and intuitive UI based on the System Center look-and-feel (same as System Center Operations Manager 2007, Service Desk and System Center Essentials)
  • Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) Conversions (Windows Server® 2000 or Windows Server 2003 are supported)
  • Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V) Conversions – Using the Windows PowerShell® interface, converts a VMWare disk or a whole VM to the analogous VS vhd\vm representation
  • 64-bit VMM server support
    Every VMM component is now remotely installable, including the VMM server, library server, delegated provisioning portal, administrative console and data store
  • Full Windows PowerShell support with documentation – automate away!
  • Better overall performance and scalability
  • Every feature from Beta 1 with more functionality and enhancements
