Information that Microsoft is developing a new cloud and virtualization management platform recently leaked through an early agenda for the Microsoft Management Summit 2011. The program, currently dubbed "Concero," is designed to function as a management tool compatible with Microsoft's virtualization tools.
Microsoft Hyper-V, which is often used to establish a Hyper-V VPS, is one of the programs Concero will be capable of working with. It will also integrate management with Windows Azure, allowing users to manage both on-premise and hosted cloud and virtual server hosting solutions regardless of which Microsoft platform the service uses, ZDNet reports.
In the online agenda for the Microsoft Management Summit, the Concero-related content said businesses are increasingly turning to hybrid solutions for both on-premise and hosted cloud and virtualization solutions.
"In this hybrid world, it is imperative to have a management tool that allows customers to deploy and manage their services across these environments. System Center codenamed 'Concero' is a self-service portal targeted at this customer base," the agenda said.
According to a recent TechTarget report, Microsoft Hyper-V has become a popular utility for server virtualization. As a result, cloud and web hosting services based on Microsoft's Hyper-V technology feature advanced tools that help manage the virtual system.
