Apple to announce Rack Mounted Server
According to Maccentral’s coverage of WWDC, Apple will be unveiling a rackmounted server on May 14th. This is not a rumor it came straight from Steve Jobs mouth!!!!!!
If you have evrything you WANT then, given the law of limited resources, there cannot be justice.
Oooh, cool. Any other information or specs on it? Like is it 1U, 2U, or just a Quicksilver with built in rails?
So Apple now has an education Mac, and an uhm, RackMac. It’s A Good Thing.
[edit: nevermind. I found the page. ]
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
Good thing indeed, and further proof that Apple is serious about the business market.

Well I think 1 RU might be abit of a stretch (if they were bringing out a few models it would be good, but 1 RU on it’s own probably isn’t worth it).
2 RU actually wouldn’t fit many drive bays and so forth either (unless apple also releases an storage array that they can connect to with Firewire 2 which would be nice
Hopefully it won’t be bigger than 3 RU (hopefully they’ll have plenty of drive bays if it’s 3 RU).
Can’t wait ! Hopefully it’s a proper server (dual redundant power supplies, fans, etc).
