XServe RAID discontinued

Apple has discontinued their confusingly named XServe RAID storage system. That's a shame, and yet another red flag for trusting Apple in the enterprise market, in my opinion.

I currently administer two of these (one on OS X Server and one on RHEL5), and I can't say enough good things about them. They have been reliable and fast. When a disk goes out, the system sends out notification and starts a rebuild on the hot spare automatically, just like a good RAID should. And they're quieter than any other dedicated RAID solution I've looked at. RIP, XServe RAID.
