HP outs MediaSmart server 3.0 software update

HP is about to finally release a software upgrade for its EX470-and EX480-series MediaSmart servers, after numerous delays. The optional upgrade, v3.0, will most notably bring with it server administration capability for Macs and faster image level backup and recovery for the computers from Apple. It is applicable to EX470, EX475, EX485 and EX487 MediaSmart servers, though HP does not recommend owners of the EX470 and EX475 to install this software unless they have upgraded them to at least 1GB of RAM. Some new features may break if this is not done.

Among other features, the new software will bring with it a second-generation Video Converter, profiles that match viewing devices, control of video conversion and an HP Media Streamer program. HP Photo Publisher will quickly upload photos to sites that include Snapfish, Facebook, Flickr, and Picasa Web Albums.

HP ships its latest EX490 and EX495 servers with the v3.0 software. Available as a server recovery solution, HP urges owners to back up the files on their servers before installing the upgrade.

Due to begin shipping next week, the v3.0 upgrade DVD will cost $25. [via WeGotServed]
