OK OK, I know I'll get flamed. I am smart enough to know that the answer to this question is 'if you have to ask, there is no possible way you are in the market for one' - and I agree. I am not in the market for an Xserve. What I am trying to do, and I hope some folks will help me without tearing me too big a new hole, is to just explain some of the thinking that would go into those who do need an Xserve, what they would do with it. I understand they are servers. Why would someone choose an Xserve over competitors servers? In the consumer space, Apple brings style and ease of use. What do they bring in the enterprise space? What kinds of 'stupid pet tricks' can you do with Leopard server? At what stage would a business have grown far enough to go 'a HA! I need an Xserve to handle X Y Z'. What types of businesses actually use these things? Compared to 'normal' macs, I get that they have lots of data and component redundancy and management features built in, but so do all other servers. What does an Xserve, and specifically Leopard OS X bring to an average enterprise? How about a Mac using enterprise? I understand they are actually a very good value for the hardware compared to competitors servers (kind of the opposite argument you typically hear about Macs) Help me out. Who What When Where and How do folks benefit from these, and what are their competitive advantages?
