Windows Admin Center is a browser-based software for administering Windows servers, clusters, Azure stack hyper-converged infrastructure, Microsoft Azure, and Windows 11 and Windows 10 PCs. It’s a completely free product that’s ready to go into production. Windows Admin Center gives you complete control over your server infrastructure, and it’s extremely helpful for operating servers on private networks that aren’t linked to the Internet. It’s the next generation of “in-box” administration tools like Server Manager and MMC, and it’s meant to complement rather than replace System Center.

Windows Admin Center manages servers by using Remote PowerShell and WMI over WinRM, removing the need to install any management agents on servers.

High availability can be achieved by deploying Windows Admin Center in a failover cluster. Only one node is active at a time in this approach, which is an active-passive configuration. When one of the nodes fails, the Windows Admin Center immediately switches to the backup node and continues to manage the servers.
