Beta release of Windows Server “8" is now available for download..<drum beats and celebrations>

We are excited as WMI , WinRM and SMIS are at the heart of management capabilities highlighted by Bill Laing in his blog. We provide the 'Management Infrastructure' for Hyper-V, Storage, Networking and many other Windows components.. and WinRM is the transport for all remote automation in PowerShell.

Stay tuned for more exciting stuff on this blog and Windows Server Blog from server leadership team.

We look forward to recieve feedback from you on the investments we have done in Windows 8 and backward compatibility of existing features in WMI and WinRM.

Thanks

Team 'Standards Based Management'
