Amazon has announced the launch of the  System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) Management Pack for Amazon Web Services (AWS)!

Whether on-premises or in the AWS cloud, this SCOM Management Pack (MP) allows organizations running their Microsoft-based workloads at AWS to monitor their AWS resources directly in the Operations Manager console to essentially provide a true “single pane of glass

What make this Management Pack unique are couple of things. First, it is can separate the server (Operating System) from the AWS Instance (Virtual Machine). Secondarily,  this creates a logical monitoring and reporting mechanism that can intelligently identify where a problem or error state exists, either in the AWS cloud or the serverOS/application running within AWS.
