Microsoft has announced that Windows Home Server 2011 has been signed off for release.

With system builders now working on specific form factors, WHS 2011 solutions are expected to hit the stores in May. An evaluation version will be offered this month to MSDN and TechNet members.

Aimed at home users with large pirated content media libraries, Microsoft is pitching WHS 2011 as a server that will make it easy for customers to organise, access and back up their files.
