Looking for advice/opinions
While this doesn't exactly relate to DrivePool I imagine this might be a question others may have and the people on this forum may have some good input. I'm building a multifunction server and have access to both WHS2011 and SBS2011Essentials. I'm trying to determine which one is best for me. I intend to use it in my home of mostly Apple computers. The main purpose is to house my video collection with a large DrivePool and to offer them to my Apple TVs by running iTunes on the server. I also run a linux server for email and web hosting via VMware desktop. Also in VMware I occasionally run a couple Windows machines for testing. To offer time machine backups I'm also running FreeNAS in a VM with a drive used for backups.
SBS2011Essentials will allow me to run more RAM which might help my virtual machines. What about development of add-ins? Do you think will be more customizable for the home market? Any suggestions?
