A post on the Windows Home Server Team Blog yesterday provided a heads-up for an update to the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article that fleshes out the data corruption problem that has been affecting some users since late last year.
Iomega today announced a new family of Linux-based rack-mount NASes in 1TB, 2TB and 3TB capacities.
The new Iomega StorCenter Pro NAS 200rL Linux Servers feature gigabit Ethernet LAN, four hot-swappable SATA drives with auto-rebuild and support RAID 0, 0+1, 5 and JBOD modes.
Thecus today announced two additions to its line of RAID 5 NASes, the three-drive N3200M and five drive iSCSI i5500.
The N3200M is aimed at media serving applications and has DLNA, UPnP AV, iTunes servers and includes a photo sharing application and USB webcam support.
QNAP today announced a 4-bay, hot-swappable NAS aimed at business users.
Apple today introduced Time Capsule, a networked backup appliance that automatically backs up everything on one or more Macs running the latest Leopard OS.
Time Capsule comes in 500 GB and 1 TB versions and looks like an Apple Airport Extreme. It works in conjunction with Leopard's Time Machine feature to continuously and automatically back up all networked Macs via either Ethernet or wireless LAN connections.
It also is a fully-functioning dual-band (single radio) draft 802.11n wireless router with built-in USB print server. Other features include three gigabit LAN and one gigabit WAN Ethernet ports and support for WPA/WPA2 and WEP wireless security.
Time Capsule will be available next month for MSRPs of $299 and $499 for the 500GB and 1TB versions.
Data Robotics today announced the launch of DroboShare, a companion product for its Drobo "storage robot" that enables users to share files over a Local Area Network.
The Drobo device can still be disconnected from DroboShare and then connected directly to a host computer.
Other features include gigabit Ethernet support, auto mounting on Windows and Mac OS X and support for up to 8 TB of storage. DroboShare is available immediately for $199 MSRP.
HP isn't putting all its media serving eggs in the Windows Home Server basket and has turned back to Linux for a refresh of its dual-drive MediaVault line.
There are three new products, all built on the same shortened version of the four-drive MediaSmart server chassis, but powered by a Marvell NAS processor with 128 MB of RAM instead of the AMD CPU used on the MediaSmart server.
