Apple announces Time Capsule
Apple has announced Time Capsule, a backup appliance that automatically and wirelessly backs up everything on one or more Macs running Leopard, the latest release of Apple’s Mac OS X operating system. The Time Capsule requires the Time Machine automatic backup software, part of Leopard.

Time Capsule combines an 802.11n base station with a server grade hard disk in one small package. Apple says user can simply plug it in, then easily set up automatic wireless backup for every Mac in th house to a single Time Capsule with just a few clicks.

Time Capsule offers the benefits of a full-featured 802.11n Wi-Fi base station, and comes in two models: a 500 gigabyte model for US$299 and a 1 terabyte model for US$499.

“Bring Time Capsule home, plug it in, click a few buttons on your Macs and voila—all the Macs in your house are being backed up automatically, every hour of every day,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “With Time Capsule and Time Machine, all your irreplaceable photos, movies and documents are automatically protected and incredibly easy to retrieve if they are ever lost.”

Built to work seamlessly with Time Machine, Time Capsule lets users back up all of the data on their Macs, find lost files and even restore all of their software. In the event a file is lost, users can wirelessly search back through time to find deleted files, applications, photos and other digital media and then restore the file. If it’s necessary, Leopard can also easily restore an entire system from the Time Machine backup on Time Capsule.

With Time Capsule users can a secure, wireless network for up to 50 users and set security restrictions such as Internet access limits for children’s computers. In addition there are also three Gigabit LAN ports available and one USB 2.0 port for networked printers.
