If you are considering a rip-and-replace operation for your current provisioning system, you can take advantage of the features of Microsoft Provisioning System (MPS) to improve the quality, consistency, and reliability of provisioning services in your data center environment. By replacing your existing system with MPS, you obtain a robust, fully-automated, and transactional provisioning system for your environment that enables you to streamline the completion of customer provisioning tasks.

MPS is specifically designed to provide a complete provisioning solution with services that support the data, Web, and application hosting market. In addition, to ease the installation and initial configuration process, MPS allows you to customize your deployment configuration by choosing roles for provisioning server components and then to automate the process of configuring MPS for the hosting environment.
