Believe it or not but one of our favorite Windows Home Server add-ins, Grid Junction, is getting a facelift. Actually, it’s more of a “under the hood” job, but however you want to call it, Grid Junction v2 will work with Windows Home Server 2011 and Small Business Server 2011 Essentials.
In case you are not familiar with Grid Junction, which means you’re not jumping for joy just yet, the original add-in was designed for Windows Home Server to manage an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) via the Windows Home Server Dashboard.
And just like the original WHS version, this new Grid Junction 2.0 will un-intrusively issue power alerts and help protect your Windows Home Server and/or SBS from power problems such as brownouts, or blackouts by safely powering down the server when battery levels reach a set threshold.
I am beyond thrilled to announce that we have received so many inquiries and sweet comments from each of you who are avidly supporting us. Thus, as promised we are definitely working on the next generation of the software. Best of all, we’ve teamed up with acclaimed Windows Home Server Add-in author and kick-ass software developer Andreas Miceli of the vastly popular Advanced Admin Console add-in fame – without whom v2 of Grid Junction would not be possible!
This is just a quick sneak peek of what’s in store for Grid Junction v2.
