Windows Home Server doing well in New Zealand

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 17-Feb-2008 09:14

An interesting bit of information I found in the Windows Home Server blog:


In order to compare the sales results of a smaller country with a larger country, you need to come up with a relatively simple way to equalize the field of play. So, if you look at Windows Home Server sales divided by the number of households with a broadband connection in each country, you get some interesting results. Here are the current rankings of the top 16 seeds in the Windows Home Server World Cup competition. 
  1. Norway
  2. New Zealand
  3. Denmark
  4. Germany
  5. Switzerland
  6. United Kingdom
  7. United States
  8. Australia
  9. Austria
  10. Canada
  11. South Africa
  12. Sweden
  13. France
  14. Netherlands
  15. China
  16. Japan


This is really cool. Windows Home Server is more than just another file server. It's not a backup on LAN like Apple Time Capsule -it is more than this.

I use Windows Home Server here. Of course I could simply run Windows Server and use shared folders for everything. But with Windows Home Server you get automated daily backups, data redundancy on select folders, and a console that allows you to monitor the status of your network - and with some cool Windows Home Server add-in software you can keep adding functionality.

It also comes with a homeserver.com domain you can use for free so you can access your home server from anywhere with Internet access. You can setup a photo website with the Whiist add-in and have your friends and family see it.

We currently have more than 2 TB (terabytes) of data including digital content and computer backups stored in our home server - and I think it's really cool to actually have that much data stored somewhere always available wherever you are.
