Apple (Cupertino, CA) has introduced Xserve, server hardware for its UNIX-based OS X server software. It can hold nearly half a terabyte of data per machine, and more than 20 terabytes per 42U rack. The server’s 1U rack-optimized design enables users to stack up to 42 units--or up 84 PowerPC G4 processors--in an eight-ft.-tall rack, with up to 630 gigaflops of processing. Xserve also features Server Monitor, a remote-monitoring application that lets users administer servers on a machine-by-machine basis or hundreds at a time. It gauges system temperature, blower operation, hard-drive health and Ethernet status. The Xserve OS X server starts at $2,999.
