PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC)
Jeffrey P. Snover, Microsoft
Configuration Management (CM) systems like Chef and Puppet hit a wall when it comes to managing Windows because of the core architectural differences between Unix and Windows. PowerShell DSC is a tools-agnostic standards-based platform which enables a wide range of CM tools to configure Windows, Linux and other standards-based devices.
Jeffrey Snover is a Distinguished Engineer and Lead Architect for the Windows Server & System Center Division, and is the inventor of Windows PowerShell, an object-based distributed automation engine, scripting language, and command line shell.
