Today's tip..

It’s been an exciting debut year for Windows Admin Center, the next-generation graphical management for Windows Server. Our team is committed to helping you manage your Windows Server infrastructure and instances, wherever they run, more easily and more efficiently. This includes delivering a platform and core set of experiences that improve day-to-day Windows Server administration, as well as lighting up new functionality and scenarios to help your organization unlock the full power of the Microsoft cloud.

  • In April, we announced Windows Admin Center and general availability of version 1804, and shared the user and business value provided by our reimagined management experience.
  • In May, we announced our SDK preview along with three launch partners to showcase the emerging value of the Windows Admin Center ecosystem.
  • In June, at the Windows Server Summit event, we declared Windows Admin Center as the fastest growing Windows Server management toolset ever, exceeding 1,000,000 total managed nodes in just over 2 months after GA.
  • In June, July and August, we continued with regular preview releases, each showcasing new and improved functionality through our Insiders program: Windows Admin Center Preview versions 1806, 1807, and 1808.

Today, we are very excited to present the latest generally available release of Windows Admin Center in support of Windows Server 2019. We are also pleased to announce that the SDK is now generally available.
