My love for Windows Home Server is no secret, a subject I will happily explain to anyone. However, a little reminder just popped up convincing me of that fact.
We had a brief power outage at HDG Towers last night (us and a few streets around us had a minute or so without electricity). Now we plan for such eventualities of course, and expected no problems. But when I saw the “Network Health is Critical” pop up a few minutes ago my mind jumped to failing hard disks or other impending doom.
Not so. I’m fiddling with an application on one of my machines that required turning off the firewall briefly. And WHS just wanted me to know that. Anything untoward on any of my PCs and WHS just likes to make sure I’m aware of it.
I like that.
Possibly the best small business server solution is also the best kept secret. And it looks like it’s going to get even better. I’ve been using Windows Home Server for a few months now and offer it to some of our small business clients as the perfect solution.
This is because most small businesses don’t need Small Business Server.
