Avoiding Professional Obsolescence
With the end of the Xserve some of us are considering a few small repairs to the way we operate. Please use this thread to brainstorm new ideas. Perhaps the best (or easiest!) will turn into permanent features on Xsanity.
Here are some ideas to kick this off.
In its infancy, Xsanity helped define the standard Xsan install that we know so well: two Xserves, QLogic, Xserve RAID, Open Directory, DNS, Clients. What will the Mac SAN of the future look like? Would a wiki help us define this?
Is the standard MDC of the future a Linux box? I remember an O'Reilly book called "Mac for Unix Geeks." Is it time for a "Unix for Mac Geeks?" Where do you get training for this?Please comment and add your own ideas..

Breaking: Apple discontinues Xserve
Apple announced today that their venerable Xserve will no longer be available for purchase after January 31, 2011. They will not be producing a new Xserve version either. They have posted a transition guide to promote Mac Pro and Mac mini Server alternatives.
Discussion continues in a forum thread within...
Update: Today Apple announced a Mac Pro Server for $2,999. While not quite an Xserve, the bundle does represent a $500 discount from a similarly configured Mac Pro. (Disclaimer: My employer sells these.)
Update 2: There are already 50 contributions to the discussion. Please continue to weigh in.
Update 3: I've asked Apple PR to make a statement on the effect on Xsan and OS X Server.
