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?

I used to work as Active Directory specialist in a company with thousands of servers and hundreds of thousands of workstations across the globe with different AD sites being connected via all kinds of connections, including high-latency satellite links. The Active Directory architecture and technologies are mostly up to the task and handle everything no problem, but unfortunately their management tools are very rudimentary and just plain inadequate in situations like these.
