Hello! My name is Kevin Kelling and I’m a Premier Field Engineer with Microsoft focused on Windows Server, virtualization, and Azure. Having worked with Windows Server since the NT 3.51 days, I’m excited to have the opportunity to share a major new feature which holds the potential to change how we interact with and experience Windows Server.

What Project Honolulu adds to this scenario is a unified web-based interface from which BOTH compute and storage elements can be managed.
