Are you looking for a good way to get started learning everything that’s new in VMM 2012? If so then here’s the guide for you:


In this post, I'll cover Unified Installer and Virtual Machine Manager. As usual, I will focus on the self-study material that is freely available from Microsoft so that you and your team can get up to speed on these important technologies. Once again, to help those who might not fully understand the purpose of the two components under consideration in this post, let me start with a brief definition of each:

Unified Installer - "You run the Unified Installer to deploy System Center 2012 components. After you select a System Center 2012 component to install, the Unified Installer prompts you for the prerequisites that the component requires. Then, the Unified Installer installs the component and its prerequisites."

Virtual Machine Manager - "System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) is a management solution for the virtualized datacenter, enabling you to configure and manage your virtualization host, networking, and storage resources in order to create and deploy virtual machines and services to private clouds that you have created."
