Velocity Home Server Leak
System builder Velocity Micro is readying a network media hub based on Microsoft's newly completed Windows Home Server. The highly stylized system will be both relatively powerful and quiet thanks to a current-generation processor based on Intel's current Core 2 architecture; a heavily ventilated case with special cooling should render the system all but silent, Velocity says. Custom orders will outfit the system with varying levels of storage into the terabyte range spread across multiple SATA drives. External SATA and USB will fill in the gaps for customers who need easily removable storage.
Though the company is reluctant to provide prices and models, it plans to release versions with cases in either a black/red combination or silver at the same time as Windows Home Server ships, which current estimates place at September or October. A barebones external SATA drive enclosure in a matching design will also be ready in early 2008. [via DailyTech]
