At Day 2 on July during a keynote at the Worldwide Partner Conference, Satya Nadella, president of the Server and Tools Business at Microsoft said that next week Microsoft will release a new beta of Operations Manager of System Center 2012, which helps customers build private clouds and manage applications across both private and public cloud systems.
System Center 2012 will further help partners and customers build private cloud services that focus on the delivery of business applications, not just infrastructure.
"Operations Manager is a key component that provides end-to-end application service monitoring and diagnostics across Windows, others platforms and Windows Azure. Operations Manager will fully integrate technology from the AVIcode acquisition for monitoring and deep insights into applications."
They also demonstrated "Project Concero" which is now officially the App Controller capability within System Center 2012 that gives IT managers control across both private and public cloud assets (Windows Azure) and gives application managers across the company the ability to deploy and manage their applications through a self-service experience.
The official name for Concero is now System Center App Controller.
Both of these System Center deliverables will be out by the end of calendar 2011.
