Windows Home Server 2011 Shipping Soon


On March 29, Microsoft announced that Windows Home Server 2011 was signed off, making it soon available for purchase. We can start seeing Windows Home Server 2011, WHS 2011 for short, available for evaluation as early as April and then in the OEM market by May. Downloads via MSDN and TechNet will also be available in early April, so it wouldn’t hurt to check on back on these services often for updates.

WHS 2011 will be available in 19 different languages including: Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan), Chinese (Hong Kong), Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

The Windows Home Server Team says that “Affordable and easy-to-use, Windows Home Server 2011 is the ideal solution to help families keep their important digital files and data automatically backed up, organized, and accessible from virtually anywhere.”

Some new changes to WHS 2011 feature a more robust system, easier installation, simpler management, better backups and more flexible remote access.
