Microsoft Windows PowerShell Web Access (Windows PWA)

Microsoft Windows PowerShell Web Access (PWA) is a feature in Windows Server 2012 that acts as a Windows PowerShell gateway to connect to a remote computer or device in your environment, providing a PowerShell console-like screen in a browser to run cmdlets or scripts to manage a virtualization environment. The web browser must support JavaScript and cookies.

There is no additional management software or browser plug-ins needed on the client. Devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops can perform management tasks from different locations with Windows PWA. Windows PWA is not inclusive to just Windows Internet Explorer and can be used on other web browsers such as Safari, Google Chrome and Firefox.
