Apple confirms end of the road for Xserve

Apple has announced plans to discontinue the Xserve product line, the company's rack-mounted server. According to Apple, Xserve provides everything you need to serve Mac, Windows and Linux clients, right out of the box.

A small yellow note on the corner of the US Apple Xserve site links to a 'Transition Guide' PDF explaining the decision.

"Apple is transitioning away from Xserve. Xserve will be available for order through January 31, 2011. After that date, customers looking to upgrade, replace, or supplement existing Xserve systems with new Apple hardware have the following two server solutions to choose from," Apple notes.

The Mac maker offers the Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server and Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server as alternatives.

Current Xserve models sold running up to January will have Apple's full standard one-year warranty. "The AppleCare Premium Service and Support program for Xserve is available as an option at time of order to extend complimentary technical support and hardware service coverage to three years from the Xserve date of purchase," Apple claims.

Currently Apple's Xserve starts from £2,451 for the Quad-Core model and £2,941 for the 8-Core version.

"Apple intends to offer the current shipping 160GB, 1TB, and 2TB Apple Drive Modules for Xserve through the end of 2011 or while supplies last. Apple will continue to support Xserve customers with service parts for warranty and out-of-warranty service," Apple adds.
