Microsoft has slashed the price of its Windows Home Server software for system builders by 30 per cent.
The giant used its Windows Home Server Blog to announce the cuts, which it said would “provide additional value to the system builder community and further promote the home server category”.
Microsoft claimed the move follows a successful year in the market for Windows Home Server and said it is seeing “strong momentum” for the product.
“During the first year, Windows Home Server has been embraced by System Builders in over 50 countries. The list of hardware partners continues to grow and third-party software developers have released or have announced more than 60 Add-in programs extending Windows Home Server’s capabilities," it said.
The price cuts kicked in on 1 November.
