Those who have heard about Window’s Server Phone Connector and have a legitimate use for the software are likely grinning ear to ear at the moment.
Microsoft is offering a server-side plugin/Windows Phone 7 application which allows users to remotely control their servers from anywhere internet is available around the world.
A post made via the Windows Home Server blog reads:
“The Windows Server Solutions Phone Connector add-in enables you to connect to your home, business, or storage server by using your Windows Phone 7 phone. This document provides help for the integration of Windows Phone 7 into Windows Home Server 2011, Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials.
After completing the integration of your Windows Phone 7 phone into a WHS 2011 server, you can use your phone to perform remote server management tasks (such as view alerts, manage users, and start and stop backups). In addition, with appropriate permissions, you can use your phone to view or access media files that are stored on the server.”
The application offers several basic functions such as triggering backups, managing users and viewing alerts. It also allows users to upload various forms of media to/from the device.
This software isn’t just for home users, either. The plugin works with Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials and Windows Storage Server 2008 2 Essentials (for the smaller companies that rely on Microsoft-powered mobiles).
The add-on can be downloaded via Micosoft’s website and the Zune Maketplace.
