So Long Xserve

I suppose that none of us should be surprised that earlier this month Apple killed the Xserve.  Apple has been doubling down on the consumer attack for months, years.  It is obvious that the strategy is

  1. Go after the consumer
  2. Go after the consumer
  3. Work with business customers that come knocking on the door
  4. Help the consumer customers drag the Macs and iTechnology into the Enterprise

 I cannot fault Apple for this strategy.  I see it working, every day.  The technology continues to gain market and mind share.  Just last month giant computer/technology distributor Ingram announced that they are seeing increased pull on the iPad in the Enteprise.  With their continued growth in the phone/handset market, more and more iPhones are showing up in businesses every day.

There are still servers in their line up.  At xTuple, we are seeing the Mac Mini server win great adoption as a server for all kinds of applications in businesses.  The Mac pro is there, if you need a beefier server.  Apparently, that will be all you get.  And if demand is any indicator, it's all that the market is asking for.
