From Hard Drives, Iomega Moves to Servers

The newest fad in storage is home servers: not just external hard drives, or dumb network-attached storage devices, but full systems designed to store and share content among PCs and out onto the network.

Microsoft jumpstarted the market with its Windows Home Server product, but few manufacturers have adopted the Redmond giant's platform, at least at present. Iomega entered the market on Monday, in advance of the CES 2009 show this week, with the Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive, a home server running a streamlined version of the Linux operating system.

The product plugs directly into a router via gigabit Ethernet and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and Linux PCs, not to mention popular game consoles like the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony PlayStation 3, as well as digital picture frames, networked TVs, and any other compatible device on a home network.

The story is too old to be commented.
