Marathon Computer is now shipping its Vert-X desktop/floorstand solution for the Xserve, Apple’s rackmount server.
The Vert-X allows an Apple Xserve or any other 1U device to be mounted in a tower configuration. To mount an Xserve in the Vert-X, you turn the rackmount on its side and slip it between the Vert-X’s uprights. The Vert-X then acts as a pair of stable feet, holding the Xserve in an upright position. The Marathon product’s design includes interlocking tabs so that additional Vert-X uprights can be added to house three or more Xserves.
The US$40 Vert-X has an injection-molded plastic construction with black satin finish. Orders can be placed with authorized Marathon dealers, or directly with Marathon.
