My Windows Home Server

Originally uploaded by ckindel.

This is my WHS box at home. It started out in a different case (an Antec), but I retired my wife’s old computer and it used this Lian Lai case (which I’ve always liked). So I used this as an opportunity to put in a bigger power supply (4 750GB SATA drives are just on the edge of what a 350W supply can do) and a 4 drive SATA hot-swap carrier.

The mobo is an Asus A8N-VM CSM with 512MB RAM and an AMD Sempron 3400.

At work I have an early engineering sample of HP’s MediaSmart server (which has very similar hw specs).

  1. I can’t say how excited I am about WHS. I really need a central backup solution, and file sharing with centralized permissions, but a domain is just not what I want at home–especially for my laptop.

    Is this product somthing that we can purchase as an OS, rather than a hardware appliance? It would be a shame to waste all the older computers I have laying around.
