Apple has recently announced that they’re discontinuing their XServe hardware for businesses on Jan 31st, 2011 and letting them move to either a Mac Pro or a Mac Mini running Snow Leopard Server. Some people in the tech industry just cannot connect the dots.
- Businesses don’t have to worry about hardware issues, i.e. where to host the server.
- Offsite location so the server is protected from most natural disasters (tornados are the largest issue, but not likely).
- Scalable as needs come up.
- Location not an issue for sys admins, developers, etc.
And if you’re looking for a server for your business, you can figure a lot more reason why.
So let’s see if my connecting the dots shows up correctly by next year.
