Last week Apple announced that it will discontinue the Xserve, its Intel-based rackmounted server, after January 31, 2011. Although Apple will continue to provide service for Xserves during and after the transition, it will not be developing a future version of the Xserve.
Apple has published a document on its Xserve site entitled the “Xserve Transition Guide,” which outlines the alternative server options that Apple is offering:
- Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server
- Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server
