In this series of blog posts, we will show you how to get started with Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS).

Introduction

Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) is a Microsoft cloud-based IT management solution that helps you manage and protect your on-premise and cloud infrastructure. Since OMS is implemented as a cloud service, you can have it up and running quickly with minimal investment in infrastructure services. New features are delivered automatically, saving you a lot of ongoing maintenance and upgrade costs.

In addition to providing valuable services on its own, OMS can integrate with System Center components to extend your existing management investments into the cloud. System Center and OMS can work together to provide a full hybrid management experience.

In this series of blog posts, we will show you how to get started with Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) so you can better protect guest workloads in Azure, AWS, Windows Server, Linux, VMWare, Open Stack and respond proactively to changing business needs and simplify IT management – all from a single portal with no infrastructure to maintain.
