So they don't have to make any more than they need to?

They probably have stopped production, but are out of stock and want to do just one more production run of exactly the number they need, instead of having extra stock sitting around.

It looks like it could be a 2U 6 dive server!!!
Maybe active was given the ok to run osx server on their hardware!
Remember Active's founder Alex Grossman was on the xserve engineering team.
