Lenovo’s getting ready to announce the IdeaCentre D400 Windows Home Server. The company posted a teaser image in a twitter post today and promised more details are to follow later this week.
The IdeaCentre D400 Windows Home Server appears to have four hard drive LED indicators on the right side of its face.
Windows Home Servers can act a central repository for a household’s multimedia files, backup every notebook on a network and stream content locally and globablly. All Windows Home Servers share a common operating system and other characteristics, but manufacturers like HP, Acer and now Lenovo add additional software and services to make them more consumer friendly.
As I noted in an article last week, Windows Home Servers can be an important piece of your backup strategy.
