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.
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
- United States
- South Africa
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.
