Recommended Posts



I've mentioned on the podcast that one of my new favorite sites to follow is http://www.servethehome.com/ and I have also pointed to a few of Patrick's post from this forum.


There is an interesting topic on choosing a CPU for the new Vail/Aurora WHS over at http://www.wegotserved.com/2010/07/27/selecting-processor-windows-home-server-vail/. check it out.

The dilemma for the do-it-yourself WHS builder, given this modernization, becomes sticking to the tried and true ultra low-end x86 CPUs (the Intel Atoms of the world) or moving to a more modern CPU architecture such as Intel Nehalem variants. This article will provide a quick overview of the pros and cons of using the different routes both for the WHS V1 builder and for VAIL


Also, how will your server handle Silverlight for streaming that will be standard in Vail/Aurora ? Is your CPU up to the challenge ?


Thanks to Terry Walsh and Patrick Kennedy for the article,
