Along with the Technical Previews of Windows 10 and Windows Server, Microsoft has made the Microsoft System Center Technical Preview available for download. The Microsoft System Center Technical Preview delivers unified management across on-premises, service provider, and Microsoft Azure environments, thereby enabling the Microsoft Cloud OS.
System Center offers exciting new features and enhancements across infrastructure provisioning, infrastructure monitoring, application performance monitoring, automation, backup and IT service management.
The preview is focused on cloud based solutions and available for testing now are the following components: Orchestrator, Operations Manager, Data Protection Manager, Virtual Machine Manager, and Service Manager.
You can download the System Center Technical Preview from MS Evaluation Center.
For a preview of Configuration Manager, our favorite piece in the puzzle, we will have to wait until sometime in early 2015.
Microsoft has also released VHD files for each of the above mentioned products available in the current Technical Preview. These can be used to easily boot a virtual machine to start testing more quickly, retain custom settings, and allow you to start from a scratch installation if you need to.
Here are download-links for the VHD’s
