Microsoft’s new integrated infrastructure management product, System Center Essentials 2007, has recently been released in NZ. It’s a management solution for small and medium sized businesses that provides similar functionality to Microsoft’s enterprise products like SMS and MOM, with additional features relevant to the smaller businesses.
This should turn out to be popular in NZ as it targets a huge portion of companies that have up to 30 servers and less than 500 computers. Out of the box it includes licenses to manage 10 servers and 50 computers with additional license packs available to be purchased up to the 30/500 limit.
Here are some links which provide a good starting point to learn about the product:
