System Center 2012 SP1 RTMs, on track to ship early next year

Microsoft might want to add a 13th milestone to that video it posted yesterday, as its System Center 2012 SP1 product has hit RTM.

After the first version of the system management suite shipped in May, some early adopters of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 wanted to better manage those machines. They should be able to do just that when  the suite becomes generally available.

The news comes from a post (via Mary Jo Foley) on a Microsoft forum. In it, Microsoft employee Mike Jacquet details upgrade paths, SP1 brings tighter integration with Intune for device management.

There was disappointment that Hyper-V tools would not emerge until the first service pack, but now that SP1 is released to manufacturing, administrators will be able to take advantage of the tools.
