Apple It's the end of the line for Apple's line of servers, the Xserve. The Cupertino giant has just announced that the Xserve line (no more future models, either) will no longer be sold after January 31, 2011, and advises people interested in Mac OS X Server to buy either a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server installed.

Apple is going to wind down its server products entirely. No XServe, no server OS in the future. Apple just can't deliver the software quality and reliability that the enterprise needs; not that many enterprises adopted Apple for their backends.


I don't expect to see Mac OS X Server go anywhere... They may not be selling to enterprise, but as Apple noted... the Mac Mini server sells like hot cakes to small businesses and education is still a large market for Apple.
