Re: Apple ranked 5th for number of servers sold

.... that's an estimate for 3rd quarter of this year for domestic sales. they don't even show up for international.

what IS heartening is that, compared to q301, they increased sales some 274%.

Oops my bad, they are hot swappable. (Last time I listen to my Mac buddy without checking facts.)

Can anybody confirm if you can setup RAID level 5 on the xServe?

I am not positive, but i dont think the xServe has hardware RAID of any kind.

Gone but not forgotten.
It's the redundant power supplies it's really missing. SCSI drives would be a good addition too but that would add mightily to the price.

XServe has the same software RAID that any Mac OS X machine has. You could always add a PCI card though.

Xserve has software RAID 0 or 1, the Xraid (3U RAID server) coming out sometime this year will have hardware RAID - 4 dedicated controllers, I believe.
