Apple Xserve


The Apple Xserve server, equipped with the new Mac OS X Server 10.2 operating system, defies categorization: It does many things well and at an affordable price. This rack-mountable (1U) server's flexibility comes from the combination of robust...

Review: Apple Xserve


Apple's rackmount server now sports Intel quad-core Xeon processors inside its slim 1U package. The 2008 Edition of the Xserve has powerful options, but deploying the device into your network should be carefully planned.

The Xserve’s base configuration offers a single quad-core 2.8GHz Xeon processor, 2GB of 800MHz DDR2 memory, and a single 80GB, 7,200 rpm SATA hard drive, for $2,999. The PCI expansion slots are now PCI Express 2.0—one 9.25-by-16-inch slot and one...

Apple Xserve


Apple's Nehalem Xserve serves the need for speed

A fast, energy-efficient, and cost-effective dual-socket 1U rack server. The enormous leap in memory bandwidth makes it possible to do so much more work in the same space, Nehalem and Mac OS X seem positively made for each other

Apple Xserve (2009) review


Offering a significant boost in performance, the Apple Xserve may - in its 2009 edition - be just the thing for video editing professionals.

1U server sees substantial performance improvement; reduced power consumption and heat output

Leopard Server can’t utilise server’s full RAM capacity; SAS drives sourced from a third-party vendor; no warranty uplift available for SAS drives; incomplete Lights-Out Management; no choices of video card

Xserve’s performance enhancements and improved power and heat efficiency combine for a compelling upgrade over previous models. Given that Leopard Server can’t fully utilise the hardware’s memory capacity, anyone who plans to use large amounts of RAM...

Apple Xserve


Apple's Xserve gets an early makeover with Intel's new 5500 Xeons, but is it still the classiest rack server on the planet?

The Xserve is far from cheap, in fact it rates among the most expensive 1U rack servers on the market when compared with its Windows-based x86 counterparts. However, few servers on the market at any price can offer the same combination of build...
