Microsoft Virtual Academy: Monitor & Operate Private Cloud Infrastructure with System Center 2012 SP1 - Part 1 - Cloud Utilization
About This Video:
In this module you will learn how System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) has been enhanced to support Windows Server 2012 and SQL Server 2012 through simplified monitoring and operating of the private cloud infrastructure. You will see how the concepts of optimization, control and standardization can be used to delegate capacity and provide cloud abstraction across a diverse infrastructure. This will help ensure that the services running in your private cloud get the resources they need, and that your cloud dynamically reallocates resources as demand changes.
System Center 2012 SP1 can help protect your private cloud infrastructure by setting limits on your clouds while ensuring the correct owners have access to their cloud resources with role-based access. You will learn about how standardization can be applied to application and OS updating through service templates. You will be able to report on the current utilization of your private cloud, trend usage over time, and forecast future needs.
Finally you will see how you can optimize cloud utilization through dynamic optimization & power optimization, as well as reporting improvements to VMs running Linux distributions in the guest OS.
