Windows Admin Center

Applies To: Windows Admin Center, Windows Admin Center Preview

Welcome to Windows Admin Center!

Windows Admin Center is an evolution of Windows Server in-box management tools; it’s a single pane of glass that consolidates all aspects of local and remote server management. As a locally deployed, browser-based management experience, an Internet connection and Azure aren’t required. Windows Admin Center gives you full control of all aspects of your deployment, including private networks that aren’t Internet-connected.

Project Honolulu is now Windows Admin Center!
