Home server – Cool "Add-Ins"


It has been a while since I have seen so many people developing cool applications and add-ins for a server product!! Recently Microsoft hosted the finalists of a “Code2Fame” program. On the Windows Home Server blog you will see the top applications which were selected.


The winners are listed below. Check out these applications.


1st


Whiist is a very cool Add-In that allows users to easily host multiple web pages and photo albums on Windows Home Server. With Whiist it’s a snap to make an Office document – or anything that can publish to HTML – into a web page on your homeserver.com site. Simply drag photos into a website folder, and you can post albums of your favorite pictures to share with friends and family.

Jungle Disk provides inexpensive online backup and storage of Home Server content, using Amazon’s S3 infrastructure. A really nice solution for “personal disaster recovery” and assured protection of your most important content. It will be available for purchase this fall.

WHSADDINS.net. This free Add-In pulls text, audio or video down to Home Server via RSS, so it’s viewable from an Xbox or any Windows Media Connect device. Very interesting possibilities here for creating personalized media libraries, accessible to the whole family at home or away.
