  • Central Administration Site a new concept in ConfigMgr 2012 which coordinates intersite data replication across the hierarchy and allows administration of hierarchy wide configuration settings
  • Data replication occurs through SQL to SQL communication without the need for file replication
  • Endpoint protection is included as part of the ConfigMgr deployment
  • Self Service portal allows end users to select software to install from an online catalog
  • Distribution points support throttling and scheduling without the need to deploy them in primary or secondary site which eliminates one of the main reasons for the deployment of additional sites in the infrastructure
