Microsoft Virtualization From the datacenter to the desktop
System Center Virtual Machine Manager Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager is a comprehensive management solution for the virtualized data center. It enables increased physical server utilization, centralized management of virtual machine infrastructure, and rapid provisioning of new virtual machines by the administrator and certified end users.
