Windows Admin Center is FREE to use. Let’s look at it!
Windows Admin Center (WAC) comes free with Windows Server and allows you vast visibility and control over your environment.
This HTML5-based UI can be set up in minutes and can manage a wide variety of servers, roles, and functions. There are new releases every six months, and paired with an extensible API, WAC is always going to be getting new features.
We’re going to tempt fate and demo it live, so come wish us luck!

 

Bring your questions!
