Microsoft Expands System Center Suite

The System Center portfolio has three new products as of today: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2007.

Aside from doing all kinds cool management stuff, these products come with one simple license that will allow a customer to buy and run them all at once. Eric Berg, director of product management for the Windows and Enterprise Management Division at Microsoft, told RCPU last week that "if you're buying any two of these products, you're better off purchasing the server management suite." By suite, he means all three products, of course.

Partners, take note: This sounds like an attempt by Redmond to simplify licensing, at least in one area -- and simplification of licensing is something you've been wanting and needing for a long time.
