Asus release ‘Home Server’ system

Asus release ‘Home Server’ system

We spoke with Asus representative Iain Bristow this morning and he was keen to show us their new, upcoming Home Server system which is due to ship in January 2010. The system revolves around the low cost, low power Intel N280 Atom CPU and is meant to be left on 24/7 without fear of a huge electric bill. It supports up to 4TB of storage and has six USB2 ports as well as two of the faster eSATA ports to help cater for future additional storage demands.

This rig will be ideal for a growing home network and it comes with Windows 7 installed with 2GB of DDR2 onboard – with a full gigabit net connection for fast media streaming throughout the home.

Easy Backup and Restoration of Home Computers
The TS mini functions as a data management center, automatically backing up data from up to 10 computers daily. In a recovery scenario, users can easily restore files or bring computers back online by loading the latest information saved on the TS mini.
 
Convenient Content Sharing at Home and Easy Remote Access
The TS mini makes it easy for users to stream photos, music, video and other digital content to various devices in the home including TVs, computers, media PCs, and gaming consoles—for comprehensive home entertainment access. By using the Remote Access feature, users away from home can also leverage on their personal Windows Live™ accounts to access the TS mini and its content. Additionally, they can stream music and multimedia content through the online connection.
 
Large Data Capacity with Exclusive Web Storage
For additional storage capacity, the TS mini provides a year of free 500GB storage over the Web. Users can boost their storage or synchronize backups online for improved data security. Additionally, users can save large peer-to-peer files directly to the web storage, and host files which can be linked to from social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
 
Enhanced Data Access and File Management

The TS mini acts as a user-friendly management console that consolidates data from various sources. With six USB and two eSATA ports—the highest number of I/O interfaces on a home server—the TS mini lets home users directly back up, synchronize, and manage their files across various USB and eSATA devices, as well as the internal hard drive.
 
Improved Home Security with Easy Surveillance Features
By connecting IP cameras to the TS mini, users can easily set up a home surveillance system. With its online connectivity, the TS mini lets users view live or recorded clips of home surveillance footage while they are away—to ensure their families are safe.
 
Better Energy-saving Features
In line with global energy-saving initiatives, the TS mini was developed to use minimal power—consuming 24.5W of power when in idle mode and 27.9W when in operation. Such energy-saving capabilities make the TS mini a good choice for 24-by-7, non-stop data center operations.
