Code named ‘Vail’, the new WHS will bring an improved UI, extended streaming options and multi-PC backup and restore.

Those waiting for a Windows Home Server refresh on razer blades can now put it down and relax. Microsoft has revealed today its public beta of the version of Windows Home Server, code named ‘Vail’.

So what’s new and exciting in this next version? Although we’re still in the midst of development work (and things may change), we can say that Vail includes feature improvements in four key areas:

  • Extending media streaming outside the home or office
  • Multi-PC backup and restore
  • Simplified setup and user experience
  • Expanded development and customization tools for partners

Check out a short demo of the new features below:
