Devfarm Software, a Windows 8 Launch Partner, today announced that it has released a new version of its popular PowerShell workflow orchestration tool, PowerWF, and its PowerShell editor, PowerSE, with support for the preview release of Microsoft’s Windows 8 platform.
Windows 8 Server, Microsoft’s next generation Operating System, reconfirms Microsoft’s commitment to provide platforms to meet the challenges of the next generation of cloud computing. A robust automation framework is essential in delivering cloud computing. As such, organizations will quickly discover that leveraging and orchestrating features available only in PowerShell will be paramount to survival in a Windows 8 environment.
For the 3 years PowerWF has seamlessly combined Windows PowerShell with Workflow technologies to provide users with PowerShell Orchestration. PowerWF provides a rich automation platform that lets IT Administrators harness the strengths and versatility of Windows PowerShell with a workflow Orchestration layer required to cross technical disciplines. Microsoft’s continued investment in PowerShell makes PowerWF stronger than ever.
“As a Windows 8 launch partner we have been working closely with Microsoft to insure that PowerWF and PowerSE will thrive in the Windows 8 world,” said Brian Butler, CEO of Devfarm Software. “It is especially exciting to see Microsoft adopting our belief that PowerShell and Workflow are really two sides to the same coin.”
“We are very proud of this release,” added PowerWF Product Manager Kirk Munro. “Not only have we brought PowerShell Orchestration to Windows 8, we are continuing to invest in our free PowerShell script editor, PowerSE .”
PowerSE’s new features include:
