"Apple told delegates at the conference that an impressive 40 per cent of Xserve sales are destined for use in such clusters – particularly in universities."
40 percent is a pretty impressive number, and, like I said in another thread, more and more people looking to buy supercomputers are going to turn to Apple. I'm glad to see Apple doing so well in this market.

Apple is making inroads into the server and supercomputing cluster markets but still has a bit of work to do in order to make their products more appealing. Areas that still need improvement include presenting a clear roadmap for future technology, accuracy in product release dates, and more accurate and shortened delivery timeframes. More detailed information on maximum, minimum, and typical power and cooling requirements for each model would also be helpful.
