Back in May we revealed that HP would be re-launching the HP MediaSmart Server in Europe at the end of the year, with both LX and EX ranges slated for release.
HP Norway now have a holding page up on their website, stating that the home server will be released over there in December 2009. At this point, we don’t know which other countries in Europe will also receive stock (I’m guessing the UK and Germany will be on the list) or timings.
HP Media Smart Server is currently not on sale, but a relaunch of the product is planned in December 2009. If you want a reminder when the product is in the shop again, you can sign up below. Your information will be used only for this reminder.
With Acer’s easyStore Home Server being released in a very haphazard manner in Europe (no product released at all in the UK, and no stock available in Germany at the moment) and Fujitsu seemingly turning to Linux for it’s next small NAS server, let’s hope HP can get the MediaSmart Server into Europe consistently and with decent availability.
