Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) is Microsoft’s cloud-based IT management solution that helps you manage and protect your on-premises and cloud infrastructure. Since OMS is implemented as a cloud-based service, you can have it up and running quickly with minimal investment in infrastructure services. New features are delivered automatically, saving you ongoing maintenance and upgrade costs.
In addition to providing valuable services on its own, OMS can integrate with System Center components such as System Center Operations Manager to extend your existing management investments into the cloud. System Center and OMS can work together to provide a full hybrid management experience.
OMS is also open, enabling you to manage and protect Azure or AWS, Windows Server or Linux, VMWare, or OpenStack with a cost-effect, all-in-one cloud IT management solution. With the open source OMS Linux agent build using Fluentd collector, data can be directly send to OMS from an Linux OS, no matter where it resides.
The OMS team has created a great community resource for discussion of all things related to implementing OMS, including deeper technical tutorials. We encourage you to check out the Operations Management Suite Blog and let us know what you think in the comments.
