Microsoft Project Honolulu comes with energy to our sysadmin life and thinking to stay. Very soft and handy, powerful, and offering almost all required tools and functionalities to monitor and administer Windows Systems. One only place collecting all useful features, even remote PowerShell console, Hyper-V Manager or Remote Desktop capabilities.

Latest added features:
