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.
