A really early and quick post (it’s still before 6AM)…
Microsoft just uploaded their new “Cloud OS” to TechNet / MSDN for evaluation. You can download all the System Center 2012 R2 components, Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2014 CTP1 from them.
Configuration Manager 2012 R2 is available here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/securedownloads/hh442898.aspx#FileId=53939
SCVMM 2012 R2 is available here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/subscriptions/securedownloads/#FileId=53935
Service Manager 2012 R2 is available here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/securedownloads/hh442898?FileId=53936
And not to forget, Windows Server 2012 R2 is available here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/securedownloads/#FileId=53655
If you do not have a MSDN subscription, get the Evals here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/evalcenter/dn205292.aspx
What’s new in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager?
I could write it all myself, but Henk Hoogendoorn already wrote a good overview and I bet there’ll be more to come the next days ;-)
I’m already updating my Lab…
