Microsoft SCVMM 2008 R2 SP1 reaches Release Candidate status

While Microsoft releases more and more details about the next version of Virtual Machine Manager 2012 , Microsoft will also make available Service Pack 1 for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008 Release 2, which is now in Release Candidate status making it feature complete. Upgrading from this Release Candidate to the eventual Release to Manufacturing (RTM) version will be supported.

Service Pack 1 will add support for the new features which will be included into Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2, like Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX.

This release candidate of SCVMM 2008 R2 SP1 supports the current release candidate of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 which was released in October this year, and is expected to be released in the first half of next year.

Also an updated Management Pack for System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) will be provided enabling Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) to use current memory consumption instead of a static memory value.
