SCE 2010 is designed specifically for mid-sized organizations and delivers a unified physical and virtual IT management experience. It enables you to better secure, update, monitor, and troubleshoot from a single console, so you can efficiently and proactively manage your IT environment:

  • A unified solution with a single console for managing your physical and virtual servers, client computers, hardware, software, and IT services
  • Smart alert notifications of IT issues, providing expert diagnostic information to accelerate problem diagnosis and quickly resolve issues before they cause downtime
  • Simplify complex management tasks, like creation of virtual servers, software deployment, update management, and inventory collection
  • And designed to be easy to deploy and maintain, exclusively for mid-sized organizations

System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

PM blog –

There are lots of reasons to be excited about DPM 2010.  Here are a few:

  • Virtualization folks get item-level restore from within VM backups, as well as support for LiveMigration (CSV) scenarios for Hyper-V R2
  • SharePoint folks lose the need for a Recovery Farm and gain auto-protection of new content databases
  • SQL Server administrators get auto-protection at a SQL instance level, huge scalability increases and a self-service restore utility for DBAs
  • Exchange managers get support for Exchange 2010, including DAG configurations, as well as CCR/SCR
  • Windows client users get protection and recovery for remote laptops, with protection online and offline
  • Disaster Recovery planners get lots of new options around multi-site chaining and protection between sites
  • And everyone gets new enterprise scalability, reliability and manageability enhancements

Personally, I have seen these being used in the Enterprises very effectively to manage their IT Environments. Feel free to get more info from the respective PM’s blogs and do take some time to download these awesome Beta’s and stay ahead of the curve.
