Anyway this is not a lesson of which is best or why use virtualization, I assume if you are reading this then you are familiar with Wikipedia for definitions and are interested in taking advantage of your ‘always on’ home server. I’m a growing software developer and a keen home computer enthusiast coupled with the fact that my job encompasses technology running on diverse platforms including the utilization of virtualization and cloud computing.I want to have a slice of that at home too which will help with my software development in terms of proving my applications on a number of platforms (read as different Windows Versions) but also allow me to run a Linux server.
Ranging between 5 and 9, the 640GB HP Media Smart Server LX195 is the best sub-0 NAS server you can find in terms of value, performance, and features. Which means that the servers are capable (from a CPU stand point) of running Server 2008, which is the base OS for WHS 2011. I have had a Windows Home Server for several years and after reading many reviews decided to take the plunge and migrate my original server (an HP Media Smart EX470) to WHS 2011. There are a number of things to consider: – The Media Smart EX470/475 servers come with an AMD 1.8Ghz Sempron 3400 processor which is 64 bit capable.I also provide a handy set of download links for those in need of a source for the update files.Where newer updates are available, except as noted, please assume I’ve tested them and they don’t work (thus, for example Uvga3_384and Uvga3_385are not suitable for Si S Mirage Graphics built into the HP Media Smart models).
