Apple not planning cluster node Xserve

updated 01:00 pm EDT, Thu August 17, 2006

CNET/ZDNet pull story

Contrary to a report by CNET News.com yesterday, Apple is not planning a distinct Cluster Node version of the Xeon-based Xserve. Both ZDNet and CNET News.com, which ran reports yesterday on the October introduction of Cluster Node version of Apple's Intel-Xserve, have pulled their respective articles without any correction notice or explanation. However, MacNN has learned that Apple has no plans for such a configuration, instead as the base model, full-featured dual-dual core Xserve is almost the same price -- only $200 more -- as the old Cluster Node model. Previously, the price difference between standard and Cluster Node was about $1000. Apple, instead, has opted to let cluster-node customers utilize a bare-bones configuration of a standard Xserve to create a "Cluster Node". According to one source, all Xserves will still have built-in optical drives, the internal equipment for three drive bays (even if only one is used), and integrated video. The publication has posted a few photos of the Xserve. [update: CNET has since provided a correction notice to its website]
