IT pros got the official pitch from Microsoft on private cloud yesterday, as corporate vice president Brad Anderson announced the general availability of System Center 2012 during his opening keynote at the Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas.

Anderson and his fellow presenters offered many arguments for implementing cloud computing, and particularly using System Center 2012 in conjunction with Windows Server 2012, the new, official name for Windows Server 8 (which means that the product should be released this calendar year). Not everyone was convinced, though; we talked to a few people who still have reservations about re-tooling their environments. What about you:  Will you try out System Center 2012? Let us know your private cloud plans — or lack thereof — in the comments.
