Active Storage uncovers ActiveSAN server tech

updated 10:55 am EST, Mon January 31, 2011

Hardware said to be Apple-recommended

Putting an end to speculation, Active Storage has announced the ActiveSAN, a new rackmount server. The hardware can be used on Xsan and StorNext networks, and is described as a 1U device with a Nehalem Xeon processor, 8GB of RAM, a Fibre Channel link and quick-removable power supplies. A public demo is planned for April's NAB 2011 convention, with a release in the second quarter of 2011.

The technology might not have as much significance except that Apple has reportedly been marketing the ActiveSAN to enterprise customers as an alternative to the Xserve. The latter is being discontinued as of today, leaving no Apple-made rackmount servers on the market. The company's official server hardware is now limited to special configurations of the Mac mini and Mac Pro.
