You can now manage your IT from any computer or mobile device which has a browser.
We have just started a public beta of the first component of the future PowerGUI Pro edition – MobileShell. It is effectively an web application you install on an IIS server. Once you installed the application, set permissions, and deployed the PowerShell snapins and modules you need – you just hit the URL from any browser, log in with your Active Directory credentials and get full PowerShell prompt you can use to manage your systems!
Communications are encrypted over HTTPS (you will obviously need a certificate for that), and the PowerShell code is executed under the account you are using to connect to the server – so all standard security applies.
And you can even connect to site from your smartphone such as Blackberry or iPhone:
Now next time you get an emergency call – there is no need to rush to your workstation. All you need to do is fire up a browser on your mobile device or a computer nearby – and you can fix the issue and keep enjoying your lunch, family time, or vacation.
We are extremely excited with this 3rd PowerGUI product (in addition to the admin console and script editor/debugger) and think it will make lives of thousands of IT professionals out there much easier!
