By now anyone and everyone watching Apple will know that the Xserve has been discontinued. Some people are not happy about this but according to an alleged email from Steve Jobs they were not selling well.
Not had to see why, I just priced a config and these boxes are more expensive than similar gear from other vendors. Admittedly the boxes look cool, but who cares when they are locked away in some data center.
Apple has tried to break into this space in the past and it never worked for whatever reason.
