Last week I have blogged about Project “Honolulu” and here is the tech preview I was waiting for. So Microsoft’s project Honolulu is a new local web-based management for your server infrastructure.
I personal belive it was time for Microsoft to provide a more unified GUI management, which is something VMware was doing for a long time now.
So starting with deployment, there are several ways, installing locally in your own windows 10 machine, having a dedicated gateway server and directly in on a server cluster you manage. Also not the gateway service can be installed on 2016 R2 and 2016.
Microsoft came a long way from when i stared working as an administrator back at the 2003 Server edition and I love what they did with the 2016 edition , thought did move some useful features on the enterprise tier.
Azure stack was the next logical step to create a bridge between the on-prem and cloud infrastructure, but when you need the similar abilities for your on-prem but can’t go for an Azure stack… Project Honolulu comes into play.
Form what MS describes to be, is the next step of your native GUI tools in a new sleek web-based package and will be soon in Technical preview and I can’t wait to try it out.
Also I can’t wait for the new announcements on the MS Ignite and getting ready for the MS Tech Summit in Frankfurt.
