Since there are only a limited implementations customers can deploy in Windows production environments, the PowerShell team realized the best option -- adopting an industry proven solution while providing tight integration with Windows; "a solution that Microsoft will deliver in Windows while working closely with subject matter experts across the planet to build it."

"I’m pleased to announce that the PowerShell team will support and contribute to the OpenSSH community," wrote Microsoft group software engineering manager Angel Calvo.

It will basically allow users to interoperate between Windows and Linux – both Linux connecting to and managing Windows via SSH and, vice versa, Windows connecting to and managing Linux via SSH -- a robust and secure solution to automate and to remotely manage Linux and Windows systems.
