SCVMM with SP1 introduces multiple benefits for managing a virtual environment. Business leaders and product acquisition teams might be looking at this product to help their organizations manage both Hyper-V and ESX platforms. It’s simple to see the ROI by deploying both VMware and Microsoft admins together to manage sometimes sprawling and often heterogeneous environments. This is all done through a platform that’s built on the System Center framework, which is becoming increasingly popular with IT admins, no matter the organization.
