RELEASE: Opalis 6.3… now with System Center Integration & Windows Server 2008 compatibility!

imageI am very excited to announce that we have released the next version of Opalis to manufacturing (RTM) and will be available for download very shortly!

Opalis 6.3 brings a wealth of integration capability to the System Center suite, including 4 new Integration Packs and support for the latest Windows Server platforms.

Included in Opalis 6.3 are:

  • New Integration Packs for Configuration Manager, Data Protection Manager, Service Manager and Virtual Machine Manager
  • An updated Integration Pack for Operations Manager to support the Server 2008 platform
  • Support for the Opalis infrastructure to run on the Server 2008 platforms

I will be posting a lot more information over the coming days, with interviews with the Product Teams, deep dives into each of the new Integration Packs and a lot more samples and quick start guidance.

Well done to the Opalis engineering teams on a great release.

Browse over to the Opalis site where you will find the links have been updated.  Note that there are now 3 links.  There are download links for the Full and 180 day trial versions, and also a new Download that allows you to patch an existing Opalis 6.2.2 SP1 installation up to Opalis 6.3.


Adam Hall, Sr. Technical Product Manager for Opalis did a series of interviews with key members of the Opalis team:

imageI went for a walk around the hallways today and interviewed the Program Managers for the Opalis 6.3 release, and in a stroke of genius also managed to get Rich Halbert and Rehan Jaddi in front of the camera too!  Rich and Rehan head up the Opalis and Cross platform engineering teams, so you’re getting a great look into the pure excitement that these guys bring to the team.

Please take a look at these interviews, they are well worth listening to.
