Workflow Foundation has proved to be extremely interesting to ISVs in 2006. One of its strengths is the flexibility to extend it to enable it to be used in innovative ways. Hence I am always excited to see what ISVs have been using it for. One such ISV is http://www.fullarmor.com. They have taken Workflow Foundation and combined it with PowerShell to deliver a great new product. By the way, PowerShell quite simply rocks – more on that in a later post.
FullArmor Workflow Studio provides the first end-to-end automation and provisioning solution for managing datacenter servers. Using PowerShell scripting and an intuitive graphical workflow UI built on top of Workflow Foundation, administrators can automate the management of Active Directory, Group Policy, Exchange, web servers, and virtual machines.
