Microsoft Recommends More Windows Home Server Add-ons

Microsoft’s Windows Home Server’s website is recommending more 3rd party add-ins:
    • Advanced Admin Console extends the Windows Home Server console to various parts of your Windows Home Server’s administration controls, giving you access to many server functions that would only be available if you remote accessed into the server itself.
    • AutoExit is a console add-in to shut down and reboot machines in your home network from within the console.
    • Diskeeper 2009 elevates system performance, debugging fragmentation-based problems as they occur, without ever compromising vital system resources, even when the whole family is connected to the computer.
    • Grid Junction UPS Add-in ntegrates seamlessly to issue power alerts and helps protect Windows Home Server from power problems, brownouts, or blackouts by safely powering down the Windows Home Server when battery levels reach a set threshold.
    • KeepVault provides real-time, automatic, and continuous synchronization, backup and sharing for your most important digital files via local or online storage.
    • LightsOut is a power management add-in that allows you to place your home server in sleep or hibernation mode at scheduled times.
    • mControl is software for your digital home. From your Media Center PC, via Internet Explorer or through your Windows Mobile device, you can control all aspects of your home with a touch of a button.
    • My Movies provides automated disc copying of cd’s and movies from attached USB drives, adding meta-data to copied discs, or movies already stored on the server. All metadata is made available to Media Centers and other devices.
    • PerfectDisk adds disk defragmentation capabilities to the Windows Home Server environment.
    • Recorded TV Manager Add-in integrates your Microsoft Media Center computers with your Windows Home Server. Collect, manage and watch your television recordings from anywhere on the network.
    • Remote Alert permits WHS Administrators to monitor remote access attempts to their Windows Home Server. Any attempt to log on to the WHS by a browser is reported in real-time using the WHS Network Health task tray icon.
    • WHS Customizer gives you control over your home server’s remote webpage. You can now change your default image display.
    • Windows Home Server Disk Management Add-in is designed for users who need more detail about their server’s storage status than what the standard Windows Home Server Storage interface provides.
