Unifying Your IT Infrastructure with SCCM 2012


Published on

Presented by Mark Thompson, IT Consultant and Trainer.
We are now facing an age where the borders between work and life have blurred. More and more employees are expecting access to corporate services such as email, databases and even files, wherever they are, on whatever device they decide to use. The primary goals of System Center are to empower employees to be productive from anywhere on whatever device they choose, reduce costs by unifying IT management infrastructure, improve IT effectiveness and efficiency.

  • Unifying Your IT Infrastructure with SCCM 2012

    1. 1. Unifying Your IT Infrastructure with System Center Configuration Manager MARK THOMPSON IT CONSULTANT & TRAINER
    2. 2. Agenda Introduction System Center Products What Does it do? Is SCCM a fit for you? Key differences between 2007 & 2012 System Center and the Microsoft Private Cloud Planning and Design, how do we get started? System Center Licensing: by John Kelbley Demonstration- Inventory, Metering, Deployment Q&A
    3. 3. System Center Products
    4. 4. Overview of the System Center 2012 Family of ProductsSystem Center Product UsageSystem Center 2012 • Self-service access for private cloud and publicApp Controller cloud applicationsSystem Center 2012 Configuration • Change and configuration managementManagerSystem Center 2012 Data Protection • Data protection for application serversManager (DPM)System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection • Malware protection for client systemsSystem Center 2012 Operations • Monitor applications, services, and devicesManagerSystem Center 2012 • Automation of IT processesOrchestrator • Integration with other management solutionsSystem Center 2012 Service Manager • Integrated service desk • Automation of IT processesSystem Center 2012 Virtual Machine • Manage virtualized infrastructuresManager • Build private clouds
    5. 5. System Center 2012 Components App Controller – App Controller helps IT administrators manage private and public clouds. Configuration Manager – Allows IT administrators to: • Deploy applications • Operating systems and software updates • Monitor compliance settings • Gathers hardware and software inventory – Multivendor platform support
    6. 6. System Center 2012 Components Data Protection Manager – Backup and recovery solution – Built-in intelligence to backup files and folders, Exchange server, SQL Server, Virtual Machine Manager, SharePoint, Hyper-V and client systems. Endpoint Protection – This component provides anti-malware and security protection for Microsoft systems and services. Operations Manager – Insight to the state of the IT infrastructure – Support for multiplatform network-device monitoring, as part of its cloud-based orientation
    7. 7. System Center 2012 Components Orchestrator – Workflow management solution – Automates the creation, monitoring and deployment of resources in the datacenter Service Manager – Automates IT service management – Provides processes for change control, incident and problem resolution, and asset management. Virtual Machine Manager – Uses shared physical resources and abstracting hardware to create a flexible platform for applications and services. – By helping manage “Fabric” resources, IT admins can build private clouds with many benefits such as Self-service and Resource pooling
    8. 8. What Can System CenterConfiguration Manager 2012 do?
    9. 9. Overview of Configuration Manager 2012 ComplianceAsset Management Deployment Security Management Hardware and Application Role-based Compliance SettingsSoftware Inventory Management Administration Software Update Power Management NAP Asset Intelligence Management Client Health Endpoint ProtectionSoftware Metering Operating System Deployment Remote Content Reporting Management Management Monitoring
    10. 10. What does System Center Configuration manager do? Unify Infrastructure Reduced Infrastructure Requirements Unified Management of Virtual Clients Endpoint Protection Compliance & Settings ManagementReduce costs by unifying Software Update Management IT management infrastructure. Power Management Internet-based Client Management
    11. 11. Operating System Deployment Simplify Multiple Deployment Method Support • PXE initiated deployment allows client computers to request CA deployment over the network S Task • Multi-cast deployment to Image conserve Sequence network bandwidth • Stand-alone media deployment for no network connectivity or low bandwidth Report • Pre-staged media deployment allows you to deploy an WDS PXE Primary Primary operating system to a computer Server Site Site that DP Role MP Role is not fully provisioned USMT 4.0 UI integration makes it easier transfer files and user settings from one machine to another
    12. 12. Simplify Client Activity and Health• In-console view of client health• Threshold-based console alerts• Heartbeat DDRs• HW/SW inventory and status• Remediation (same as Setting Management)
    13. 13. Asset Intelligence, Inventory, and SimplifySoftware Metering• Consolidated/simplified reporting that allows you to• Understand software installation profiles• Plan for hardware upgrades• Identify over or under licensing issues• Track custom apps or groups of titles Real-time Application Asset Intelligence Software Metering & License and Hardware Intelligence Service Reports ConfigMgr Inventory Asset Intelligence Catalog
    14. 14. SimplifyRemote Control Whats New in Remote Control – Ability to send Ctrl-Alt- Del keystroke to host device – Granular client settings per collection – Lock keyboard and Mouse – Ability to create Firewall exception rule – Ccmeval monitors and remediates Remote Control Service

    31. 31. Determine Business Requirements Needs may include Inventory and generating reports. Deploying Applications, Operating Systems & Updates Discuss requirements with the stakeholders to identify which SCCM features will be implemented
    32. 32. Determine Number of clients and Locations Number of clients to manage is most important when deciding to deploy Configuration Manager “Sites” Plan for Data replication if your organization has multiple locations.
    33. 33. Plan SCCM Logical Infrastructure Determine the number of sites to use for SCCM deployment Typical scenarios for SCCM deployment include Single primary site Single primary with secondary site Central Administration site Multiple primary sites
    34. 34. Deployment ScenariosDetermine the number of sites by identifying: • Network infrastructure for Configuration Manager 2012 • Business requirements for Configuration Manager 2012 • Migration requirements from Configuration Manager 2007 to Configuration Manager 2012 • The number of clients that need to be managed and their locations • The following characteristics of your organization: • The AD DS forest structure • The number of physical locations • Available bandwidth between locations • The location(s) of your IT support staff • The number of remote clients
