Acer, a computer manufacturer, announced on Thursday (21 May) the new
Acer Aspire easyStore Home Server for customers in the US.

Windows Home Server, has been designed for households and home-based
businesses with multiple PCs. It offers a simple way to network home
computers, centralise, share and protect digital data as well as access
it remotely, regardless of the location.
The black tower measures 8.3" x 7.8" x 7.08". One-touch USB copy
enables quick file uploading. Users need to plug in the USB device and
push the button and the data is automatically sorted and stored by file
type into designated folders.

hard drive and three hard drive bays available for storage expansion.

restore a single file or an entire PC. Users can access the home
network irrespective of their location, for full access to their files
