Microsoft Windows Home Server – A hybrid of Mac and a vacuum cleaner…
Wow. Look at Microsofts new home server… eeh, wait a minute. Isn’t that Electrolux self going vacuum cleaner? You’re right, but when you have a glance at the new server from Microsoft you’ll see the similarities. Looks like the designer of the Trilobite cleaner from Electrolux, got a new job… at Microsoft tech department… This cylindrical, glowing piece of machinery is basically an easy to use, plug â€˜n play server for the family. You can share all your movies, pictures, music, files, etc. with up to 10 users wirelessly and can access your files anywhere in the world via a free personalized domain.
A representative gives the information that the device has internal drives, but the storage capacity differs. Microsoft is actually using these as OEM devices and customizing them to different manufacturers needs. HP is releasing their version in Q2 this year with a storage capacity between 500GB and 1TB. Thereâ€™s also four USB ports and three extra drive bays in case you run out of storage. Price? Rumors are that itâ€™ll be in the $500-ish zone.
But it is kinda sweet looking, dont you think?
