At Microsoft Management Summit 2008 in late April, I talked with Microsoft execs Brad Anderson (general manager, Windows and Enterprise Management Division) and Larry Orecklin (general manager of System Center and virtualization) about significant recent Microsoft announcements for IT professionals who manage mixed environments. In these videos from MMS, Brad and Larry discuss the following ground-breaking announcements: In addition to managing Windows, the System Center family will manage various flavors of Linux and UNIX, both physical and virtual; System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) will manage non-Microsoft hypervisors such as VMware’s; and other major developments related to Microsoft’s strategic commitment to support heterogeneous environments.
