This contest is over. Thanks to all who participated.
Over the last few months, I’ve reviewed and talked about the HP X510 Data Vault. It is a stand alone server that you can use as a home or business backup, or a full multimedia server at home or on the web. Well now you can have your own, as we are announcing the HP Data Vault giveaway! You can win one of 7 HP X510 Data Vault machines!
Each web site will run contests their own way. At the end of their week, they will give away the X510 StorageWorks Data Vault. Head over to the following sites to find out more information:

A little about the HP Storageworks X510 Data Vault
The Data Vault is a Home networking tool to have running backups for your home or small business computers. It is relatively small – only 9.7″ high and 5.5″ wide. Inside is a Dual Core E5200 Pentium processor at 2.50GHz. The X510 also comes with 2 GB of RAM and 2 – 1 TB Hard Drives. The Data Vault runs Windows Home Server SP2. The X510 retails for $700.
Geekazine reviewed the HP X510 back on Feb 15th, 2010. I have posted the video below for you to peruse. Geekazine has also posted some other articles throughout the site:
- HP Warranty Extended to 3 Years
- Installing Apache, MySQL, PHP as a Sandbox
- Jam Packed Show Before the Holidays
Other Prizes in this contest!
There are several additional prizes that will be awarded for creativity on your part.
This is an overarching contest and spans all 7 participating bloggers. Ivy Worldwide and HP ask that each blogger submit the 10 most creative entries to Ivy and HP Worldwide once your particular contest is completed. Therefore, a person/reader could win a Data Vault from you and also win for creativity. We need to make certain that this part of the contest is communicated with your individual contest, so please do so. The results of the creativity contest would be announced 2 or 3 weeks after the end of all the blogger contests.
So we will have an additional area where you can tell us how we can promote the HP Data Vault. It can be a poster, a slogan, a musical jingle or more. The most creative can win :
- HP Mini 311
- HP 8″ Smart Wi-Fi Display (sd828a1)
- HP T-shirt
