System Center Essentials 2010 (Essentials 2010) is a new management solution in the System Center family of IT systems management products specifically designed for midsized businesses. Essentials 2010:
Provides a unified solution with a single console for managing a broad range of tasks across your physical and virtual servers, clients, hardware, software, and IT services for a unified experience.
Enables you to proactively manage your IT environment, helping keep your system up-to-date with a solution that accelerates problem resolution and enables automation of system updates and data collection.
Is easy to deploy and maintain helping simplify complex management tasks for increased IT efficiency.
When purchasing the suites, customers will still purchase the System Center Essentials 2010 management server (just as they would for the standalone System Center Essentials 2010 product), but they will only need to purchase one client management license and one server management license for each physical Windows client or Windows Server device they want to manage and protect with System Center Essentials 2010 and System Center Data Protection Manager 2010. The rights to use the System Center Data Protection Manager server will come with the purchase of the System Center Essentials Plus 2010 Client Management or Server Management license.
