Centralize Files with HP MediaSmart Server

  • At CES 2010, WebProNews met with Steve Murtha from Intel to discuss the HP MediaSmart Server.

    With up to 17TBs of storage, this new server centralizes all files in one location.

    As Steve Murtha tells WebProNews, the server is based on the Microsoft Home Server OS and is about value propositions.

    The first essential aspect of the server is protection. The HP MediaSmart Server simply and automatically protects your content on your home PCs and Macs. With a backup of up to 10 PCs or laptops in a household, the server provides a cloud with its third party ISP through the open API. This allows individuals to feel comfort if a hard drive fails, knowing valuable content or personals from the computer will have protection with the HP MediaSmart Server.

    The second value proposition is sharing. Accessing media is possible anywhere anytime, and sharing with others is easy. The server can stream media from the home server to networked computers. TVs, Xbox 360s, and mobile devices can also receive streamed content.

    Lastly, the server provides remote access. The HP MediaSmart Server fits in your network, supporting wired and wireless PCs, through a wireless router. The user can then access their home server from anywhere in the world with internet access. This simple process makes sharing data that much easier and keeps your content safe.

    The HP MediaSmart Home Server is available at prices starting at $299.
