Great VMware & Windows Server R2 / System Center R2 comparison via @KeithMayer

On his blog, Keith Mayer wrote a very good comparison between Windows Server 2012 R2 with System Center R2 and VMware vSphere 5.5 Enterprise Plus + vCenter Server 5.5.

I would highly suggest you to read this article, it’s a good and well researched comparison.

Free ebook: System Center: Designing Orchestrator Runbooks

Microsoft published a new and free eBook that concentrates on how to design Orchestrator Runbooks.

Cou can download it here.

 

Introduction

Welcome to Microsoft System Center: Designing Orchestrator Runbooks. We believe that orchestration and automation are becoming increasingly important in IT organizations of all sizes and across all infrastructure types ranging from on-premises to cloud-based. Orchestration and automation can help reduce the cost of IT while improving consistency and quality of IT service delivery. Like any powerful technology. however, it can be both used and abused.

Our objective with this book is to provide a framework for runbook design and IT process automation to help you get the most out of System Center Orchestrator 2012 and to help you utilize Orchestrator in concert with the rest of the System Center for an enterprise-wide and systematic approach to process automation. We will provide detailed guidance for creating what we call “modular automation” where small, focused pieces of automation are progressively built into larger and more complex solutions. We detail the concept of an automation library, where over time enterprises build a progressively larger library of interoperable runbooks and components. Finally, we will cover advanced scenarios and design patterns for topics like error handling and logging, state management, and parallelism. But before we dive into the details, we’ll begin by setting the stage with a quick overview of System Center 2012 Orchestrator and deployment scenarios.
