What’s new in ConfigMgr and SCEP Technical Preview 3

Last week, ConfigMgr and SCEP Technical Preview 3 became available. Technical Preview 3 provides you with an early glimpse of the functionality that is planned for Q4 2015 (close to Windows 10), bringing with it full support for client deployment, upgrade, and management of Windows 10.

New features available in Technical Preview 3 include:
-Deployment of required applications to Windows 10 devices managed via on-premises mobile device management (MDM) – You now have the ability to deploy required applications to Windows 10 PCs and mobile devices managed via MDM with on-premises ConfigMgr infrastructure. (Intune subscription required)
-Cluster-aware settings – Servicing a cluster just became easier! With this third technical preview, you can deploy an update to a cluster while controlling the percent of servers that are online at any given time, and specify actions to run pre- and post-deployment. > Cluster-Aware Updating Overview
-High availability support with SQL Server 2014 AlwaysOn – Using SQL Server 2014 AlwaysOn Availability Groups, you now have improved support for both high availability and disaster recovery for the ConfigMgr database.
-Ability to run software update cleanup tasks – You can now schedule and run WSUS cleanup tasks from the ConfigMgr console. > Great feature!

Also included in this technical preview are features that were previously released in the first and second Technical Previews for ConfigMgr.
