The New Tranquil PC Home Server Revealed

Tranquil PC has just announced their newest Windows Home Server, the SQA-5H, or - for more fun – the “SQUASH” Server. The new server offers 5 “tool less” HDD drives, but the SQA-EX slave expansion unit provides five additional drive bays connected with a single cable expansion unit for potential storage up to 10TB. A one-touch backup button on the device lets you do a quick backup to a removable HDD from the server itself. Another button (the “mode” button) allows you to see the storage capacity of your drives at a glance by using an LED light display on the front panel.

The SQUASH server also offers near-silent operation thanks to its fanless CPU cooling system. A 1.66 GHz Intel Atom 330 Dual Core CPU keeps the power consumption low which saves you money while conserving energy.

There are two different variations on this server – the SQA-5H-1000 and the SQA-5H-2000. The 1000 is the entry-level unit featuring 1 GB RAM and a 500 GB HDD. The 200 has 2 GB of RAM and a 1 TB HDD. Because Tranquil is a UK-based shop, prices are in pounds, not dollars. The 1000 unit is £399.00 and the 2000 unit is £499.00.

The server comes in both black and white and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Units will begin shipping on November 6th.

    Now I know this is petty and that the idea of these products is that they can reside in a cupboard somewhere but that is not a great looking machine, at least in pictures it isn't. I like Tranquil and want a good WHS so I guess this may be getting my cash regardless.

    I was thinking something similar, it looks like something that would be in the background of 2001 or a 70's space flick. But that might also be why I like it so much (besides the face that it has an external 1-cable add-on for external drives). I think this will be my first off-the-shelf WHS.
