A System Center View of Linux/Unix

Microsoft doesn't mind its software interacting with Linux and Unix -- so long as Microsoft software is in charge. In an ideal Microsoft heterogeneous world, Windows-based management tools monitor and manage Linux, Unix and sometimes Mac clients.

That is basically the idea behind System Center 2012 Monitoring Pack for Unix and Linux operating systems.

This tool has been out since the spring but just got tweaked late month. With it, IT pros can track "processes, resources and server agents" of these non-Microsoft servers, doing high-level checking of server performance and availability.

The tool tracks Red Hat, Solaris, SUSE, IBM AIX and HP-UX.
