So apparently in the next couple of months (can't remember exactly when) Apple will release their XRAID. I don't know if any of you have heard of this, or if it is indeed labelled as such, but, it will follow the same looks as the XServe. It will however be a 3U configuration (not a 1U), housing (I think) 14 ATA drives, mounted on their sides, not flat like the XServe. And it will be hardware RAID, unlike the XServe which is only software. Sounds tops to me.
