Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft System Center

Thanks to the platform developed by Microsoft, the Microsoft System Center allows you to monitor with ease, but also with the maximum possible detail all the infrastructure of your Data Center. For what is my experience I use with great satisfaction the operations manager that allows me to monitor different SQL server-side operations.
  • ease of management
  • complete overview of the infrastructure
  • unique and centralized console
  • differentiated licenses depending on whether you have VMs or physical servers
  • license prices too different between VMs and physical servers
  • initial configuration not very fast
  • excellent performance monitoring
  • centralized management therefore time saved
  • single license for multiple control uses
I have not chosen this software directly because I found myself in an environment that already used this product, a purely Microsoft environment. Therefore the choice that has been made has proved very effective and above all suited to our needs, and for this reason, no alternative has ever been evaluated.
Scenarios which Microsoft System Center is useful are if:
  1. you are the systems engineer for a company and you have a complex data center in a Microsoft environment,
  2. you need to centralize the management of your data center in a single point
  3. you want to check its performance, make detailed analysis after a downed service
  4. you want to analyze what happened
