The Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal 2.0 SP1 (VMMSSP) is a fully supported, partner-extensible solution that customers can use to pool, allocate, and manage their computing, network, and storage resources to deliver the foundation for a private cloud platform in their datacenter," revealed Microsoft.
"VMMSSP is a fully supported, partner-extensible solution built on Windows Server 2008 R2, Hyper-V technology, and System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)."
"You can use it to pool, allocate, and manage resources to offer infrastructure as a service and to deliver the foundation for a private cloud platform inside your datacenter. VMMSSP includes a pre-built web-based UI that has sections for both the datacenter managers and the business unit IT consumers, with role-based access control," the software company stated.
"VMMSSP also includes a dynamic provisioning engine. VMMSSP reduces the time needed to provision infrastructures and their components by offering business unit "on-boarding," infrastructure request, and change management."
The VMMSSP package also includes detailed guidance on how to implement VMMSSP inside your environment.
Important VMMSSP is not an upgrade to the existing VMM 2008 R2 self-service portal. You can choose to deploy and use one or both self-service portals depending on your requirements.
