Compact, flexible and powerful, the Western Digital WD Sentinel DX4200 looks to be a competitive choice for any business seeking to expand its storage capabilities.
You’ll have heard of Western Digital, of course. The company has been selling all manner of storage equipment for many years, from internal hard drives through to external hard drives and more recently, at the top of the tree, the DX4000 Storage Server. WD sent us one over pretty late in the product’s lifecycle, but given Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials systems have been thin on the ground, it’s worth a look.
Microsoft today unveiled its plans for a range of new Windows Server 2012 product lines, but there was no room for a dedicated Windows Home Server refresh. Instead, the company’s small server lines have been merged into a single product SKU – the $425 Windows Server 2012 Essentials. Home users wishing to migrate to a Windows Server 2012 product will be required to upgrade to Windows Server 2012 Essentials, as the new entry level Server SKU available to the public.
