We told you back in early February about Drive Extender functionality coming to WHS2011 courtesy of the add-in StableBit DrivePool ad since then there has been 2 further announcements from 2 different companies. First up is Drive Bender which is due its first beta release today.
Similar in features to StableBit DrivePool the difference with Drive Bender is that it will be available for all versions of Windows P and above bringing DE functionality to Vista, Windows 7 and even more platforms.
Second on the list is DataCore software who will be providing an affordable storage solution for Windows Home Server:
“DataCore looks forward to bringing enterprise-class storage to Windows home and small business users. The combination of DataCore with both Windows Home Server and Windows Small Business Server 2011 will help you grow and protect your storage as your needs grow.”
- Carlos M. Carreras, VP of Alliances and Business Development
Drive Extender favorably known as DE may be gone from WHS2011 but its functionality is certainly not dead. We look forward to the first beta releases of these add-ins, and will test and publish our findings
