Flying Nerd working for Microsoft (without pay)

I’ve been accepted onto my first official Beta program – the Beta for Microsoft’s forthcoming Windows Home Server (WHS).

The idea of WHS is that it can provide:
* centralised (and automated, if required) backup for all PCs in the home
* simple access to network-based shared (or dedicated) storage – without requiring user knowledge of drive configuration
* simplified remote access to data on networked PCs.

I’m looking forward to installing the software on my server over the next few days. I’ll keep you posted on how I find it. I’m REALLY interested as to how well this would suit an organisation such as a church with several staff.

Independent article about WHS is here.
