Windows Home Server
With CES now well under way and the blogsphere hanging on to every announcement it’s good to see Windows Home Server finally make a public apperance, there have been comments and hushed remarks about this at least as long as I’ve been as MS Towers, interestingly the HP MediaSmart Server in the picture is almost exactly how I imagined the box might look like. OK without the blue bars or the HP logo but you get the idea.
Of course lots of people have been doing this kind of thing for sometime but it’s interesting to see it now productised and sold as an appliance. As it’s designed to be placed out of sight it doesn’t come with a keyboard or monitor but is accessed via a web based console from any PC, or Mac hopefully, in the house. It won’t be long I suspect before we see a whole range of these from various hardware vendors and I’m going to start clearing space this weekend!
