This customized control center was designed by HP developers to put an easier front end on server access for end users. If you build your own system using the OEM release of Windows Home Server, you won't see it.
The tools in this administrative control center exist to shelter users from the intimidating console. Note the iTunes library integration, which is supplied via an add-in and is not included in the OEM Home Server package.
As an administrator, you get early warning of problems on client PCs connected to the server. These messages include alerts about missing or outdated antivirus and antispyware software, disabled firewalls, missing backups, and hard drive problems on the server itself.
