NB: April 12 is a full day of Azure.  This event in the morning will appeal to IT pros, and the afternoon event will appeal to developers.

The continued rapid evolution of computing requires IT pros to stay nimble and adjust their skills to meet the needs of their changing networks. Virtualized computing environments and the growth of “cloud” computing mean that the physical servers and workstations we have had on premise for years are quickly being virtualized or being placed in cloud based datacenters. How do we manage these assets that we can’t touch?

System Center Essentials 2010 and Windows Intune bridge the gap between the physical, the virtual, and the cloud for IT Pros and Network Administrators.

System Center Essentials 2010 combines several of Microsoft’s flagship System Center family of products into an easy to use, unified management solution. Combining deployment, configuration, management, reporting, alerting, configuration and more into a single console for physical and virtual assets gives IT Pros a unified view and control over all aspects of their small to medium size networks. Designed for networks with up to 50 Servers and 500 workstations, System Center Essentials 2010 gives IT Pros the information they need to monitor and maintain their entire network.

Windows Intune is a new cloud based management solution that is currently in beta. Windows Intune allows an IT Professional to begin managing many aspects of their networks immediately – without installing costly on-site servers. Simply deploy the small footprint Windows Intune agent to the workstations you wish to manage and within minutes you have the ability to: Monitor PC’s, Manage Updates, Protect PC’s from Malware, Provide Remote Assistance, Track Hardware and Software Inventory, Set Security Policies, and more!

Presenter: Chris Avis, IT Evangelist, Microsoft.
