Apple Kills Xserve

Illustration for article titled Apple Kills Xserve

Apple is discontinuing their Xserve line of server computers—they'll stop selling them on Jan. 31. Folks looking for an Apple server have two options: a Mac Pro or Mac mini configured as servers with OS X Snow Leopard Server.

Given that the mini is their "most popular server platform by far," it's not too surprising. [Apple]

As far as hardware is concerned, the Mac Mini and/or Mac Pro can

replace an XServe.

But as far as power and small size (that fits in a rack nicely) the

XServe was the way to go.

I'm sure it wasn't their most popular model, but it really is a

shame. Now large companies would have towers taking up space

instead of the slim XServe.
