Now Available – System Center Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal 2.0 RTM

Looking for a solution that helps you reduce IT costs, while increasing agility for your organization? Build a foundation for your Private Cloud with the Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manger Self-Service Portal 2.0 (SSP).

Over the last year, we have been talking about the need to provide a set of capabilities, including self-service, to build a private cloud to deliver Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). As Brad Anderson, corporate vice president at Microsoft, announced in his keynote at TechEd Europe in Berlin this week, SSP is released now. It’s free and fully supported! You can download it here. Below are some more details about what the Self-Service Portal is, which technology partners are extending SSP with integration packages today and where you can find more information like technical guidance.

We also announced Hyper-V Cloud at TechEd yesterday, a set of programs and initiatives to help our customers and partners deploy private & public clouds to deliver IaaS based on Windows Server Hyper-V, System Center, and related products. SSP is a component of many of the Hyper-V Cloud offerings. You can read more about Hyper-V Cloud in this blog.


Partner integration with Self-Service Portal

The Self-Service Portal includes powerful extensibility features for Microsoft technology partners. Independent software and hardware vendors can customize different virtual machine actions (create, delete, stop, start, shut down, connect, pause, and so on) to take advantage of the unique characteristics of their infrastructure. We are working with a number of technology partners on Self-Service Portal integration packs.

These partners already offer an integrated solution:

Citrix Integration Pack for Self-Service Portal

Compellent Solution Pack for Self-Service Portal

F5 Solution for Self-Service Portal

HP services using Self-Service Portal

Intel Cloud Builder Guide: Cloud Design and Deployment on Intel Platforms

NetApp ApplianceWatch PRO 2.1.1

VKernel Chargeback with Hyper-V
