Acer announces Acer Aspire easyStore Home Server
May 22, 2009 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Acer, a computer manufacturer, announced on Thursday (21 May) the new Acer Aspire easyStore Home Server for customers in the US.
The company said that Aspire easyStore, outfitted with Microsoft Windows Home Server, has been designed for households and home-based businesses with multiple PCs. It offers a simple way to network home computers, centralise, share and protect digital data as well as access it remotely, regardless of the location.
The black tower measures 8.3" x 7.8" x 7.08". One-touch USB copy enables quick file uploading. Users need to plug in the USB device and push the button and the data is automatically sorted and stored by file type into designated folders.
The server features an Intel Atom processor 230, 2GB DDR2 memory, 1TB hard drive and three hard drive bays available for storage expansion.
The hot swappable HDD cage enables users to increase their data storage by adding up to three 3.5" internal hard drives, which means it offers up to about 7TB of total data storage. The cage is outfitted with release levers for each drive to keep them secure. In addition, a recovery/reset pinhole provides additional data protection by enabling system restores and data recoveries with one touch.
In addition, the server works with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) 1.5 Certified Home Server (DMS) and digital media player (DMP) to enable music playback as well as photo and video viewing on a TV.
Microsoft Windows Home Server centralises digital media in one location, making it easy to access files, photos, videos and music from any PC on the network. In addition, it protects data by creating an image-based backup of every home computer every day, so users can restore a single file or an entire PC. Users can access the home network irrespective of their location, for full access to their files and applications.
The Acer Aspire easyStore AH340-UA230N Home Server is available in the US for a MSRP of USD399.99.
