Windows Home Server went live. Over on 10 you can catch a video interview of yours truly talking about the online availability of the HP MediaSmart Server. In the video you’ll see the following:
- My horrible camera presence.
- What the HP MediaSmart Server drive carriers look like in action. I hot plug a drive during the interview.
- A home server I put together myself that I use at work.
- The “Hockey Puck” prototype that people just can’t seem to get enough of.
HP’s Windows Home Server is available for pre-order (Amazon, CompUSA) and will be shipping before the holidays. I stopped by Charlie Kindel’s office to get a look at the HP and talk about Home Server. You can get a feel for just how small the HP Home Server is and some of the nice features it includes like screwless drive replacement.
You can get a glimpse of the “hockey puck” Home Server prototype and see the Home Server Charlie built himself, which uses a 5-drive chasis that fits into 3 x 5.25″ bay slots – here is where to find one of those.
