What are your prefered Operations Manager Management Pack? What are the TOP 5?

September 15, 2015 Leave a comment

The System Center community is large and continually growing. For new users that are just getting to grips with the new software, there is an abundance of additional management packs that need to be installed before getting the full benefit. These Management Packs (MPs) take the form of updates from Microsoft, free software from 3rd party vendors, and paid-for solutions from 3rd party vendors.


We want to know what your top 5 must-have MPs are in each category. Whether you are an IT Manager, Administrator, consultant, or MVP, this is your chance to share your experience and let others know what MP’s everyone should have. We will publish the results in a later blog highlighting the top 5 System Center MPs. Whether you are a new user with Microsoft System Center or a seasoned professional, the survey is completely anonymous

N.B. All Management Packs included were available on Microsoft Pinpoint or Microsoft Technet at time of writing: Vendor Management Packs, Microsoft Management Packs

High availability and disaster recovery

September 10, 2015 1 comment

High availability and disaster recovery are key components of an Enterprise’s IT environment. While more and more companies are adopting Hyper-V on Server 2012 R2 for their private cloud solution, Savision’s newest whitepaper, written by Microsoft MVP Peter de Tender, will explain how:

-You can leverage on the power of Microsoft Azure for building a Hyper-V based datacenter disaster recovery plan.

-You can migrate your in-house VM’s to Microsoft Azure, guaranteeing uptime and availability of the machine and the applications to your end-users.

Not using Hyper-V yet? No worries, Azure Site Recovery can also act as failover for your VMware or physical host platform.

Learn from Peter De Tender, independent technical speaker, valued Microsoft Infrastructure Architect, Microsoft Certified Trainer and Windows IT Pro MVP, about the core features of Azure Site Recovery, extended with insights on how Savision can assist you in monitoring the ASR topology by showing real-time feedback
