[singlepic id=268 w=320 h=240 float=left]Apple has announced it will be discontinuing the Xserve as of January 31, 2011. The announcement was quiet, since it only appeared on the apple Store and in a note on Apple’s site.
“Apple will not be developing a future version of Xserve. Xserve will be available for order through January 31, 2011. Apple will honor and support all Xserve system warranties and extended support programs. 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.”
Customers are left with Mac-Pro and Mac Mini server options.
