Microsoft to launch the Technical Preview of project Honolulu – browser based GUI management tool

Microsoft is planning for a makeover of server admin with a new GUI (Graphical User Interface) named as Project Honolulu.

The Windows Server team of Microsoft will be releasing the technical preview of the project during Ignite, September 25-29 in Orlando, Florida.

Honolulu is a flexible browser-based graphical management tool deployed locally for Windows Server, version 1709, and even other server versions as well.

Samuel Li, Windows Server principal program manager lead, said in his blog that, “Project ‘Honolulu’ is the culmination of significant customer feedback, which has directly shaped product direction and investments.”

He added, “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.”

Project Honolulu is the result of the suggestions and feedback from end-customers – mostly the IT admins, who said that PowerShell was not enough for scripting and automation, and that they needed GUI tools for better ease of management, per the company.

With the project, Microsoft aims to invest in GUI tools for various operations like data visualization, comparison or for configuration or troubleshooting. The company plans to evolve and expand GUI tools that will be complementary to investments in PowerShell and other large scale solutions like Operations Management Suite (OMS).

As a part of the Project Honolulu’s technical preview, Microsoft will also preview its new solution for managing hyper-converged infrastructure. It will give admins more flexibility to manage everything related to the HCI cluster at one place like VMs, volumes, drivers, server health statuses etc.

The compete demo and preview will be revealed at the Microsoft Ignite which is a few weeks away.

We will be bringing more updates on Project Honolulu. Stay tuned.
