Windows 7: Microsoft takes the wraps off Storage Server 'Breckenridge'

Microsoft takes the wraps off Storage Server 'Breckenridge'


On November 8, Microsoft took the wraps off a new version of Windows Storage Server, which seems to be is the product codenamed “Breckenridge.”

Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, like its Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 sibling, is a platform for network-attached storage appliances. The difference is Storage Server Essentials is aimed at small businesses (up to 25 users) — companies which may or may not have dedicated IT pros on staff.

From a new blog post on the Windows Storage Server blog:
Configuring Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials is easy: remove from box, connect to network, power up and access the device from a browser to configure it. The management dashboard makes it simple to manage, maintain and monitor the health of the Windows Storage Server Essentials device, and client computers.”
Breckenridge is one of a handful of new home/small-business server products in the “Colorado” codename family. It “shares common features and usability” with both Windows Home Server “Vail” and Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials (”Aurora”).
