Första dagen utan Xserve

AFP548 minns Xserve och blickar framåt:

Yes, we loved you Xserve. You showed up with some G4s, a wind tunnel full of fan noise, and drives that would unmount even when locked. As Apple learned more about servers you changed and grew and even broke into the top 5 server platforms. For a while your crazy uncle Xserve RAID showed up and crashed at your house. Once he broke parole and went back to jail things got weird though. You took in that green renter, then you got evicted.
Now all that’s left is that green guy and some pictures on the wall.

Yes, we loved you, but it’s time to move on.

Dags att lära sig en ny term: RAIS, Redundant Array of Inexpensive Servers.
