We will discuss some Systems Manager features, including requirements and building blocks like the Systems Manager Agent, Resource Groups, Instance Roles, Hybrid Activations, Fleet Manager and Session Manager. This will present the basic features, setup and connectivity from Systems Manager to properly configured managed instances.
