*SMACK*... That was your one and only warning slap... all future ones will be beatings.Originally posted by Tue12
All I want to know is, do they come in fruity colors?!
one of these would be highly usefull for us here at work...it would make the workflow much smoother when having to dig back into archive cds...Originally posted by AlphaTech
I will be trying to get one of these in at work, as soon as I can figure out a way to justify it's existance on our network. Never mind the fact that it will never go down, and will support all the users here.
OS X (server and desktop versions) have RAID support built into the OS. You can set up drives as either RAID 0 or 1 without adding anything extra. I would imagine that you can do either of those to the non-booting drives inside the server. Use RAID 0 (aka Striping) and you have a single volume with approx. 3x the spec's of each individual drive (they will act as a single, über fast ATA drive) with 3x the space available.Originally posted by JoeCanadian
Does anyone know about RAID support?
Reminder: Mac OS X Server costs $999Originally posted by JtheLemur
I am completely unimpressed! $3000 for a base model? I hope they give big discounts for education or something! Check this edu pricing:
Quicksilver OS X Server (unlimited clients)
1 GB RAM
2x 80 GB ATA drives
Sorry, but faster RAM and ASIC is not enough to warrant the price - seems like yet another situation where we're paying for the design. I'd rather just get the above Quicksilver and rackmount it. Hell, I'm serving up more than 1000 MacintoshManager accounts over 10/100bT and AirPort to over 500 computers with 4 servers HALF as powerful as the Quicksilver system above, and it works FINE!
Maybe I will dig up a rack, set it up at home, and buy one next year. Sounds like a good thing to do with next years bonus to me. With the ability to add additional ones later, I could even set up my own web site on it, have it run 24/7 and almost never need to check on it. Add storage (rack mount of course) as I need it, and it will be sweet. Of course, this will force me to get a gigabit NIC for the game peecee so that I can access the server at blazing speeds. I will also be able to plug directly into the server with my TiBook, and download at insane speeds .Originally posted by eyelikeart

but I doubt we will be getting one...
so I will have to envy u all who will have the luxury of getting one...

You could get a Quicksilver and rack it... but it would cost you $999 to buy Mac OS X Server.
Sorry for the confusion...Originally posted by porovaara
Is a little out there especially considering some of the competition listed (by Apple) give you the OS for free. Of course the msoft os's aren't free but still.
