Last week we announced Project “Honolulu”, our new Windows Server management experience, and today we are excited to present the technical preview release, just in time for Ignite!

We invite you to download and start using Project “Honolulu” technical preview today! Check out the deployment guide and the related documentation for more information and to quickly get up and running. For future updates, be sure to follow the Project “Honolulu” team blog. There will be a series of video walkthroughs and articles which you won’t want to miss!

Here are the first two bite-size videos in the series, to give you a better understanding of what we’ve built:

1. Overview: Take a broad look at Project “Honolulu”, its architecture, deployment options, and its capabilities.

2. Getting started: See how easy it is to install and start managing servers, failover clusters, and hyper-converged clusters in your environment.

If you’ll be at Ignite, stop by our booth in the Hybrid Platform area of the expo, and attend our two breakout sessions to get even more details:

After you’ve had a chance to try out Project “Honolulu” for yourself, send us your feedback. We are looking to you, our valued users, to help shape our future investments as we build out this new platform and ecosystem of solutions and tools!
