Check out our MediaSmart Server EX470, which provides remote access to files on the server, automatic backup of all networked PCs, media streaming across your home network, a photo sharing Web site, and virtually limitless storage expandability (500GB plus three empty expansion bays).

This home server is based on Microsoft's Windows Home Server operating system and supports 10/100/1000 (Gigabit) Ethernet and both wired and wireless networking (requires wireless router). AMD Live! 64-bit processing power supplies fast file access and timely backups. The sleek micro-tower is quiet and designed to complement the décor of your home office or living room.

Web sharing, backups, and more
