The sky's the limit when it comes to Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011, not only in functionality but also in ease of use. Once you complete a simple installation and set-up process, you're ready to take advantage of all the server has to offer. Read on to see some of the things the server can do for you!
Keep Daily Backups of All Computers—Always ensure that your data is backed up, even your family's computers, with a few simple clicks. Every computer connected to the server, including the server itself, can take advantage of daily backups. Ensure that no data is ever lost!
Restore Files or Entire PCs—Have a hard drive failure? No problem! With Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011, you can restore an entire PC on a new hard drive easily. Or, if a file goes missing, restore that as well. Even restore your entire server in the event of a critical disaster. Rest easy knowing that all of your files are safe, no matter what.
Share Files Easily or Keep Them Private—If you want your files to be easily shared from computer to computer, you can! Or, if you want certain files to be off-limits, you can have those as well. Your server is your own, your files are your own, and they are as available or as private as you want.
Monitor Performance—A computer running slow? See why with Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011. Or, if you aren't sure if one is misbehaving, monitor the data and see what's up.
Antivirus and Other Protection—Share antivirus software for your entire network, rather than just installing on one PC at a time. Install updates globally as well, ensuring that every computer on your network is up to date and ready to be used.
Access Your Files from Any Computer—Laptop on the frizz? Desktop shut down? Access all of your photos, movies, and other files from any computer on your network at any time.
Stream to Any Device—Easily stream your shared photos, music, and movies to any device on your network. You can take a trip down memory lane any time you want. Enjoy content on your TV via Xbox 360 as well.
Access Your Network Remotely—Traveling somewhere and need a file or want to watch a movie? Access your home network from a remote location quickly and easily with a few clicks. Your files can go anywhere you do!
Take Advantage of Third Party Apps—If you need additional support, use third-party applications and add-ins easily. Note that these applications are not supported by Microsoft. Add-ins can also be ASP.NET applications, hosted in IIS 6.
Ten Computers Included—Give access to everyone in your household with ten user accounts included in your purchase. No matter how big your household gets, you will always be able to offer support and functionality to those that use it.
Selective Data Redundancy—Avoid single drive failure with Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011. The server automatically duplicates selected data across multiple drives, so that in the event of a critical failure on one machine, your files are still there, safe and sound.
No Monitor or Keyboard Required—Your server can be accessed remotely from any machine, ensuring that the server itself does not need its own set of hardware, like a monitor or keyboard. Simply access it from one of your many machines and do the work you need to with a few clicks.
Expandable Storage—Find yourself needing more space than you initially thought? Don't worry about it! Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 provides a unified single and easily expandable storage space, removing the need for drive letters. Have as much space as you need, and as your files grow, so too can the storage to save it all.
One Music Collection—Share your music with your entire family, allowing them all access to the music they love with Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011. Listen to as much as you want, with no limits!
