Intel Xserve may be good for business

Better business Xserve

Apple's recently-released Intel-based Xserve is set to attract more business customers, according to one report. The new Apple server system is better for cluster applications because it can run more operating systems and receives more predictable performance upgrades, offering better performance per-dollar. IT managers in past years were beholden to PowerPC's intermittent performance updates and running PowerPC-based versions of even standard Linux software, according to Electronista. That 'drawback,' however, was abolished when the company unveiled its Intel-based Xserve system. Apple may see improved Xserve sales moving forward as more companies select the slim server hardware for various installations. [updated]

    These things

    just look too cool to be servers, sitting somewhere in the back room. I wonder how many customers use them as their "workstations," instead of as "servers."

    Interestingly, the new Mac Pro can hold more drives, cost less, and is available now (instead of October for the Intel Xserves).
