PowerShell 4.0 introduces desired state configuration (DSC), a powerful new feature that makes it easier than ever to manage your Windows infrastructure, whether on premise or in the cloud. DSC is built on the Common Information Model (CIM) standard developed by the Desktop Management Task Force (DMTF) and uses Windows Remote Management (WinRM) technology as a communication mechanism. In this post we will look at what Windows Remote Management is and how it is used in the Windows OS world to enable standards-based management. In the upcoming posts I'll explain how CIM cmdlets in PowerShell use WinRM to work with management data from remote systems and the role of DSC in managing remote machines.
