    I purchased the peachpit press books intending to do the Apple Certified System Administrator (ACSA 10.6) exams but havent had time to do so until now. From what iv'e read about discontinuing of xserve and apple looking to move away from this area is it really worth my time and money doing this certification anymore? I want some apple certification to my name. Im wondering if I should just do the Apple Certified Support Professional (ACSP) 10.6. its only one exam as opposed to four. Any advice would be appreciated thanks

    Servers will STILL exist in the form of Mac Pro Server & Mac Mini Server on the hardware front, while Lion will also have a server. There are MANY OS X SL servers currently in use and will require on-going support before an unplanned indecisive progression to just quickly upgrade to Lion Server - I can think of a few in-house apps for some organizations that would slow the upgrade process.

    still worth it to continue reading & studying. I will begin myself next week for the same book/course.

    but with no xserve, do you think apple will it be taken seriously anymore in the server market? A Mac mini isnt exactly power! what are options for redundancy etc...
