This is very, very disappointing: Apple discontinues the xserve. It will be available for order until 31th of january 2011. The recommendation of Apple is to buy the Mac mini Server edition or the Mac Pro in future. While the Mac Pro is a great product, i can’t imagine putting it in a 19″ rack: two Mac Pro on a shelf would take the place of 12 units — wow.

At ClipDealer we have two of the xserve. They are great machines and i will definitly miss the possibility to buy more of them.

R.I.P. xserve — i had a very good time with you.
