Today, we are thrilled to unveil the next step in our journey for Windows Server graphical management experiences. In less than two weeks at Microsoft Ignite, we will launch the Technical Preview release of Project "Honolulu", a flexible, locally-deployed, browser-based management platform and tools.

Project "Honolulu" is the culmination of significant customer feedback, which has directly shaped product direction and investments. With support for both hybrid and traditional disconnected server environments, Project "Honolulu" provides a quick and easy solution for common IT admin tasks with a lightweight deployment.

I've never managed any servers, so it's difficult for me to gauge how useful of popular tools like these are. What is the usual way people manage their servers?

Depends on the size of your organization. If it is huge and a lot of servers (thousands), you usually do it via command line.

If it is a smaller organization, you can do both command line and GUI. The GUI can speed up simpler operations if the GUI supports them, so this is a very welcome addition, especially if you can manage the rest of the servers from one of your lesser used domain controllers.
