Psystar, known mainly for its controversial Mac clone, says it has begun shipping two new servers, both of which have the option of pre-installing Mac OS X Leopard Server. Apple's licensing terms require Leopard to be installed on official hardware; Psystar's OpenServs, however, are unsanctioned and also compatible with server software such as Window Server and Ubuntu.
The OpenServ 1100 uses a 1U mount, and has four drive bays supporting up to 4TB of storage. Up to 16GB of RAM can be added, and processors can include two quad-core Xeons. The 2400 switches to a 2U mount for as much as 6TB of hard drive space. Configurations for the former start at $1,600, while the 2400 costs a minimum of $2,000.
