CRN features En Pointe in System Center 2012 SP1 Brings Cloud OS Closer

CRN a top news source for IT Channels, IT vendors, and channel and partner reviews features En Pointe Technologies in an article regarding Microsoft System Center 2012 Brings Cloud OS Closer. The article discusses in detail how System Center 2012 SP1 will enable on-premises infrastructure to support Bring Your Own Device or BYOD.

En Pointe Technologies’ data center and cloud management manager Andrew Hertenstein tells Scott Campbell of CRN that how Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1 enables En Pointe to offer a more robust management feature to its customers.

"It's a holistic approach that we weren't expecting from the 2012 release. We were not able to do full management of Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 systems and cloud integrations. A lot of the hardware manufacturers we support have key features that rely on System Center 2012, but we haven't been able to manage those systems that needed Windows Server 2012. The cloud integration and management is awesome. A great example is MDM coupled with Intune, and [it] extends that BYOD pitch we can make to CIOs and CFOs", said Andrew.

"To be able to take those tools to move virtual machines to the cloud, or backup disk to the cloud, to offsite storage -- these are all brand new features we're really excited about. It's like a whole new product and not just a service pack", explained Andrew.
