If you haven't seen or read the announcement that we just posted, read more here: HP Announces New Line of SoHo-Focused DataVault Product Line.  

Harry Brelsford over at SMB Nation also chimed in on this announcement. SMB Debutante Ball: HP to “introduce” HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault Series… The really cool part is HP will “debut” the HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault at the SMB Nation Fall 2009 Conference (October 2-4, 2009, Las Vegas) which is coming up fast. I believe one of our SBS MVPs, Kevin Royalty will be jointly talking with HP about this exciting new offering at SMB Nation. So, if you want to go hit Las Vegas, there is still time to register.  As an added perk, a number of our Home Server, Small Business Server, and Essential Business Server team members, Jonas Svensson, Becky Ochs, Chuck Archer, to name a few will be down there too. Please swing by the Microsoft booth at SMB Nation and talk to us. We would love to hear from you.

 As you may know, we have talked about Windows Home Server in the SOHO space before, Windows Home Server – Can It Be a SOHO Solution?. You may also know that Kevin Royalty, has talked a lot about how he has been deploying Windows Home Server into his SBS customer's environments for some time now. Alex Kuretz one of our Home Server MVPs just did a story on this. Using Windows Home Server in a Small Business.

 I can't wait to get my hands on this new server. 

Have a great day!
