Microsoft System Center Advisor
Proactively analyze installations of your SQL Server, Windows Server, Exchange Server, and SharePoint 2010 through an online service, and generate alerts that identify potential issues.
Proactively avoid problems with ongoing assessment of configuration
System Center Operations Manager is great at alerting server issues as they happen - but what if you could actually prevent server configuration problems before they ever impact your server's performance or availability? System Center Advisor is an online service that analyzes your Microsoft workloads by collecting data from your installations. Generating alerts that identify potential issues (such as missing security patches) or deviations from identified best practices with regard to configuration and usage.
System Center Advisor ensures that the issues customers report to Microsoft are detected before they affect your environment. Advisor is regularly updated to reflect the most recent experiences of these engineers, who support customers around the world.
