At the same time as Microsoft released the Windows Server Technical Preview back in October, they also released Technical Previews of the System Center suite. This are very, VERY early code, and the only scenarios to test are support for SQL 2014 and Windows Server vNext. So for new features I had to do a little bit of digging.

There was enough there for a single post however and I cover some things that aren’t in the preview yet but that are coming, read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
