Apple Prepares To Push Into Asian Server Market

Apple is preparing to push the Xserve rack-mounted server in the Asian market, and according to a CNET article yesterday, Apple is confident that they will be able to carve some space in this growing area.

Frontline Technologies, a Singapore-based IT services company, will resell the Xserve in Asia. Cheong Yen Niap, Frontline?s managing director, said that despite the Xserve?s late start, there are niches it can compete in.
