Indian IT information site CIOL reports that Apple has launched Xserve in India with prices of 246,000 rupees and 326,000 rupees, depending on the configuration.
XServe is Apple’s rack-mounted 1U server. It’s built on the same architecture now used in Apple’s Power Mac G4 systems and features the server version of Mac OS X. It incorporates an unlimited user license and sports features including file and print service, media streaming capability, Internet services and more. The product was introduced to the North American market earlier this year.
Apple Computer Asia Pacific Software Product Marketing Manager Darren Sng told Ciol that India’s IT literacy and quality IT professionals makes it an important market for Apple. He explained that Apple is targeting the Xserve “apart” from the company’s traditional strong vertical markets like education, graphic design, print and media production.
