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?

Microsoft has also been investing heavily in microservices and Nano builds of Windows Server with the new release. Now you can even run linux containers directly from Windows.
It's usefull as well to have a local browser based management tool for your private repositories.
Problem is that they're a bit late to the party. World has moved along for some time now. Not sure how long this catch up game will last for Microsoft.
