Design, implement, and improve your infrastructure administration with System Center Orchestrator 2012 R2's automation process About This BookLearn about the components of Orchestrator, the design and implementation process, and the way it interacts with your environment to create outstanding automation processesGain an in-depth understanding of Runbooks, while exploring its security and troubleshooting aspectsFollow this step-by-step guide at your own pace and get yourself in the frontline of the Orchestrator worldWho This Book Is ForThis book is targeted at those who want to gain time in their administrative tasks and profit from it to also improve their environment by reaching a more autonomous infrastructure.What You Will LearnPlan, assess, design, and implement Orchestrator 2012 R2 in a corporate environmentMaster the Runbook Designer and discover all about the Runbook creation processImport and integrate more technologies through new imported functionalities and learn what they bring to your environmentExtend your possibilities and interaction with your environment while you get to grips with the best practices for this systemImplement High Availability, security, backup, and recovery procedures and fine-tuning of the platformFamiliarize yourself with the Runbook design and its implementation with an insight into the methodology for a more dynamic data centerIn DetailWith the increasing complexity of systems in our infrastructure designs, administrating these systems has become more complex and repetitive. This ultimately translates into an inefficient environment and a loss of time. System Center Orchestrator 2012 R2 is the tool that can help you regain that time again, by simplifying repetitive tasks (or complex ones) into a simple one that will require minimum intervention from you, or even none.Starting off with the fundamentals of Orchestrator, this book helps you to learn the configuration and deployment of the Orchestrator 2012 R2 in a corporate environment to successfully deploy and mitigate real life issues that you might encounter. You'll learn the most used part of Orchestrator, the Runbook Designer, with all its components and mechanisms to help you efficiently design and implement your Runbooks from top to bottom. You finally round off by gaining insights on the maintenance aspects of Orchestrator, while simultaneously covering the troubleshooting, backup, and recovery features.
