Alex Kuretz over at has just posted a deep-dive into the new HP MediaSmart EX49x series servers.

Today HP is continuing that evolution with the third generation of the EX series and have announced the upcoming release of the MediaSmart Server EX490 and EX495. I’ve been fortunate enough to have spent the last couple of weeks using and evaluating the EX495 model running the new 3.0 version of the MediaSmart Server software, and I’m ready to give you a tour of what you can expect from the new MediaSmart Server.

Some of the screenshots show a suspiciously familiar icon!

Now, the HP units don’t come with WHS Disk Management installed out of the box (although that could be remedied very easily, are you listening HP?), but it appears we can safely say that the new EX49x units work great with our add-in.
