Interesting article but they are only using 16 Dual proc Xserves. I would have thought for the money that to ad another 16 or how evermany Dual processors it takes and not have to wait for processing time would be even be an even better idea. Good to hear that they are using Apple though!

Great stats: 100% uptime for 4 continuous months at 100% usage on the CPU. This is something the IT folks need to hear.

yeah the 100% thing got my attention too. Sure it's probably not a very long test time (4 months was it?) but 100% uptime with 100% cpu is the best you could expect!!

Wow they aren't even running 10.2.8.

Ha what a great system.
