Whats New In SCOM 2016

Yes, yes, I know.  Late to the party.  Better late than never.    Smile

 

For those that don’t know – SCOM 2016 was released at Ignite this year, on Sept 29th.

It hit the GA milestone on October 12th, which is the date it becomes Generally Available on Volume License media and MSDN, along with the date it becomes officially supported.

 

You can download the 180 day EVAL – which is available at:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-system-center-2016

The EVAL version is fully capable of being licensed with your key from MSDN or Volume Licensing, later after you deploy.
