Microsoft Windows Home Server

PC Magazine
5 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Windows Home Server is a respectable first attempt at a software-based, home-oriented network-attached-storage environment. From a full-fledged home server perspective, however, the company missed the boat on features such as parental controls and auditing. It's also aimed squarely at the OEM market. Those who want to construct their own WHS appliance can do so at their own risk.
  • Pros: Good NAS features, image-based backup with file-by-file recovery, and bare metal restoration. Good remote access feature. Robust SDK gives rise to plug-in development culture.
  • Cons: Disk-driver support is critical to building your own. Remote access requires UPnP home router or skill at reconfiguring your firewall (or both). Lacks parental controls. Lacks Windows SP and security-update download caching.

Dit super gebruiksvriendelijke systeem lost in één klap een aantal nijpende problemen van de moderne digitale gezinnen op.

Microsoft Windows Home Server

CNET
5 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Et il souhaite même en faire davantage. Ce système sauvegarde, restaure le contenu de disques durs de PC d’un réseau domestique et permet d’accéder à ses documents à distance. Windows Home Server est vendu seul ou préinstallé sur des serveurs. Les serveurs vendus dans le commerce sont censés consommer moins d’électricité qu’un simple PC transformé en serveur de fichiers. Un point donc à méditer puisque le serveur sera, en principe constamment, allumé.
