Microsoft System Center Range

The Microsoft System Center range helps manage physical and virtual information technology environments across datacentres, client computers, and devices. Each Microsoft System Center product manages a different aspect of an organisation's infrastructure. The products are designed to work together, but each can be used independently.

In order to use these Microsoft System Center tools, you need the appropriate server software, server management licenses for all the servers being managed or monitored (both physical and virtual), and client management licenses for all the end users or computers being managed (both physical and virtual).
