Microsoft debuts Storage Server 2003

Microsoft introduced Windows Storage Server 2003 - the successor to its popular Windows Powered NAS product - at its annual TechEd conference yesterday.

Both Hewlett-Packard and EMC have indicated they will release products featuring the new file server to coincide with the launch of Storage Server 2003 in September.

HP is already working with Microsoft and is receiving code, said Charles Vallhonrat, a product marketing manager at Hewlett-Packard's infrastructure and NAS division. This, he says, is an extension of a long-standing partnership with Microsoft. HP released its first NAS product based on Microsoft code in July 2000.

Windows Storage Server also has a number of new features, including support for clustering of NAS devices, point in time copying, and file replication and hooks into its Windows Server System - the overarching suite that provides management of the different components such as BizTalk Server and Exchange Server.
