Amahi home server project

amahi_logo

Once I already blogged about Ubuntu Home Server. Now it’s time to announce another one – Amahi. Amahi is based on Fedora 8 and offers hard drive disk space monitoring, a private wiki, network PC drive backups and file sharing, Vista calendar / iCal / Outlook integration, a custom web browser search extension for IE and Firefox (very cool), plugin extension support (currently available: browser-based photo slideshow, food recipe recorder, BitTorrent downloader), print server, dynamic DNS configuration for remote access, and simple network setup.

I hope that Amahi can make a live of home users who have more then one PC. But it might be a good idea to add more entertainment stuff such UPnP media server or SlimServer. In any case Amahi is just in beta stage. So, it has a time for improvements.

Ubuntu Home Server

Ubuntu Home Server

Recently I discovered Ubuntu Home Server Project. As project creators say:

Ubuntu Home Server (UHS) will be an edition of the Ubuntu operating system which allows users to administer their home network. With Ubuntu Home Server you will be able to store all your music, songs and pictures in one central location, to access your files over the internet and to backup all the computers in your house.

So, hopefully we’ll have a good alternative to Windows Home Server. Especially, Ubuntu has the most attractive user interface IMHO. Also, we should take into account that recently open source home automation system Plutohome was ported to Kubuntu. I can see the good tendency that two great software product for home are concentrated on the same OS.

eXcito Bubba Mini Home Server

If you’re looking for an elegant home server Bubba Mini Home Server from eXcito is exactly what do you need. Bubba is a really power server based on Debian. It offers not only file storage with Samba access. It also includes Apache web server, email server, print server, and backup server. The Bubba provides a web browser interface for administration, managing files, sharing folders, and downloading content from specified URLs. The price is very very reasonable – 318 EUR for Bubba with 80GB hard drive and 370 EUR for 250 GB.
