Apple Xserve (2.8GHz Quad-Core Xeon) (2008)
Apple's Xserve server Mac is powered by a four-core 2.8GHz Xeon processor by default, with build-to-order options for two four-core 2.8GHz Xeons or two four-core 3.0GHz Xeons.
The quad-core Xeon-based Apple Xserve is a superbly modern 1U server with powerful options for storage and remote access. As with any server, deployments should be carefully planned--the embedded LOM may necessitate an additional Ethernet card under some circumstances, and anyone upgrading from a PowerPC-based model should study their power and cooling infrastructure before upgrading.
