Windows Home Server is showing off its momentum at CES this year.
Windows Home Server Program Manager Jonas Svensson is just one of many of our team members down at the show. He reports back that the first thing he saw when pulling up to the convention center this morning was our Windows Home Server posters!
Jonas sent us pictures of all the CES activity, including the bustle of people lined up to enter the showroom floor, and how Windows Home Server looks in the Microsoft booth. Check out the cool new LaCie box there too. In case you missed it, LaCie just announced
a new network storage server based on the Windows Home Server platform. We are showing the product for the first time at CES.
LaCie brings an exciting new design to the Windows Home Server family and provides plenty of storage options with terabytes of capacity and the ability to back up data from local computers and to cloud-based services with the cool Wuala
It’s hard to believe that Microsoft Windows Home Server solutions have been in the marketplace for more than two years now. The product has experienced such great momentum during this time, with distribution into 50 countries, penetration into new channels including home-based/small businesses and telecommunications, as well as commitment from the top five hardware partners: Acer, ASUS, HP, LaCie and Lenovo.
We also enjoyed reading this piece
in Redmond Developer News
that lists Windows Home Server as a continued success story in their predictions for 2010. Andrew Brust tells us “I think it's the best home network backup product out there, and that's really just the beginning.”
Customers and partners are realizing the true value of a device that allows consumers to protect, connect and share their most important files. We think that Windows Home Server offers a great platform for new ideas to be nurtured. It’s not just Microsoft growing this market – it is also all the great enthusiasts who are developing for it and the passionate users who love the product – so thank you to all of our supporters!
Stay tuned for more news and updates from the team down at CES.
