System Center Configuration Manager and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 can be used to create and deploy operating systems. See how System Center Virtual Machine Manager can be leveraged to provide additional capabilities:
* Creating an "image factory", leveraging SCVMM and Hyper-V to automate the process of creating reference images, both in WIM and VHD formats.
* Customizing VM templates using ConfigMgr 2007 and MDT 2010 task sequences, so that you can reduce the number of templates and customize them when they are deployed.
PowerShell is key to this level of integration and will be featured in the session.
