What Windows Server Home is all about

January 8th, 2007 by Zack Whittaker

Windows Home Server is certainly going to be a highlight for Microsoft in the home-user department. It’s going to be based loosely on Windows Vista but with some server addition’s thrown in which make it easier for the standard home user to administrate and sort out their files and networking.

It’s not clear however whether Windows Live Drive will have anything to do with Windows Home Server or not. What we’ve managed to establish so far:

  • Windows Home Server will be released sometime this year as a product for home users to centralize their files, media and folders.
  • Storage will be easily expandable so you can have gigabytes, terabytes and even petabytes of storage as long as your hardware supports it.
  • You’ll be able to access your files from anywhere on the web.
  • Windows Home Server will be an operating system similar to Windows Vista and not so similar to Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server “Longhorn”.
  • Windows Live will be involved in making remote access possible.
  • Server backups will be optional but installed as standard, and each file will be backed up incrementally online saving your bandwidth and online storage space*
