Asus serves up Windows 7 Home Server box

2TB of on-board storage - add more using eSata

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Updated Asus has taken the wraps off a home server build out of an Atom processor and up to 2TB of internal storage.

The Home Server TS Mini uses the 1.66GHz Atom N280 allied with 1-2GB of 800MHz DDR 2 memory to run Windows 7 Home Server.

Asus' Home Server TS Mini: bionic nettop, basically

On-board storage slots into a pair of 3.5in Sata drive bays, but there are six USB 2.0 and two eSata ports round the back so you can hook up extra drives and back up the internal storage. It's networked through a Gigabit Ethernet port.

The server is 245mm high with a 204 x 96mm footprint, so it's not exactly tiny. Fully laden, it weighs 3.9kg. It consumes between 24.5W and 27.9W, Asus said, depending whether it's idling or thrashing the hard drives.

That makes it "a good choice for 24x7 non-stop data centre operations", Asus claimed - should you be running such a service in your home, that is.

Update
Asus has now confirmed that the TS Mini will debut here in Q1 2010 for around £299. ®
