System Center Release Cadences Require Extra Planning

  • System Center Configuration Manager and the rest of the System Center suite will receive new releases on two separate cadences.
  • All System Center components must be upgraded at least once per year to receive updates, but likely should be upgraded more often.
  • Critical updates (fixes unrelated to security) are provided only until the next new version is available, while security updates are available for 18 months.
  • Organizations need to balance their business needs with the new release cadences of System Center.
