This client management license (ML) suite allows one nonserver device to be managed by a set of System Center 2012 server technologies. If a device has multiple operating system environments (OSEs), a separate client ML suite is necessary for each OSE.

Benefits for Organisations

If you have a dedicated IT department and staff with datacenter administration experience, your organisation can use System Center to:

•    Pool shared resources into a "private cloud" to provide users with IT as a Service that they can self-allocate through a portal.
•    Manage hybrid cloud environments that combine public and private cloud applications and services from a centralized interface.
•    Standardize and automate datacenter processes to reduce costs and improve service reliability.

Licensed Components

This ML suite licenses nonserver devices to be managed by these System Center components:

•    Data Protection Manager: enables disk-based data protection and recovery for file and application servers as well as client computers
•    Operations Manager: monitors the health of IT services across datacenter and cloud infrastructures
•    Orchestrator: a workflow management tool for automating the creation, monitoring, and deployment of IT resources
•    Service Manager: an integrated platform for automating and adapting your organization's IT service management best practices


Other types of System Center licenses are also available. For more information, see Guide to System Center Products and Licensing.

Server Software

With System Center 2012, the right to run management server software is included with the MLs.

The software includes a runtime version of SQL Server Technology (SQL Server Standard Edition) to support System Center. No additional licenses are needed for management servers or SQL Server technology.
