HP MediaSmart Server = Neat

We are setting up a home network for one of our clients.

We are just in the process of setting up the Windows Home Server box by HP.

What a neat little box! It is almost bullet-proof in its set up routines and uses a very easy console for management.

At the SMB Nation Fall conference fellow MVP Kevin Royalty crashed a laptop that was being backed up by a WHS box. He had it restored to a new hard disk in under 2 hours.

That was a pretty killer demo and sold me on installing WHS HP boxes at client sites to backup key workstations.

And ... The HPs do Mac backup and selective restores! The HP Media Vault series coming down the pipe will actually do a full backup and restore of OS X Macs.

They are definitely something to look into.
