As with most Microsoft products aimed at the Data Center/Enterprise you need an advanced PhD to understand the pricing mechanisms behind it's licensing procedures (seriously, I downloaded the datasheet from their website and it's like trying to read ancient Egyptian).

Not to mention that it doesn't actually tackle the same pain points as Puppet/Chef but hey, never mind that eh!

Puppet/Chef/cfengine are tools for managing configuration. This is something that system centre actually doesn't do very well . System centre does a great job of monitoring the event log and bouncing out the events to an alerting system but working with the management packs required for any thing that is not written by MS is a pain in the ass.

What we are seeing is a move to manifest driven configuration for large deployments. Trying to do the same with GPOs is horrible. Puppet does have its draw backs trying to manage manifests is a pita they suggest using a svn/git to manage these in large deployments .

Which is, at the small glance I've seen so far, looks to be pretty close to Puppet/Chef running on WIndows. Something that, as said, SC isn't too hot on.
