Service Provider Foundation Developer’s Guide

The Service Provider Foundation for System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Developer’s Guide helps you to work with the services that Service Provider Foundation provides. If you are new to programming with Service Provider Foundation, see Getting Started.

Currently, the Service Provider Foundation Developer’s Guide describes two of the three services that Service Provider Foundation exposes, the Administration Service and the Virtual Machine Manager Service. The provider service that Service Provider Foundation exposes is briefly documented and is should not be used.

The Architecture Overview describes how Service Provider Foundation operates and how data is communicated between the client and the server.
