Psystar, who, believe it or not, have taken to calling themselves, “the leading provider of Mac-compatible computers,” as if Apple doesn’t exist, has announced the release of the OpenServ.
According to Psystar, the OpenServ is capable of running practically any server software, ranging from Linux, Windows, to Mac OS X Leopard Server.
The OpenServ comes with a variety of choices, stemming from a single Xeon 2.5Ghz quad-core E5420 processor to Dual Xeon 2.66Ghz quad-core E5430 processors. It is available with anywhere between 4GB and 16GB of fully buffered DDR2 RAM, plus the OpenServ offers up to 6 drive bays on tool-less rails, in a rackmount form factor. The OpenServ is available in two varieties: the 1u version (referred to as the 1100) and the 2u version (2400).
According to Psystar, “the bare bones quad-core Apple Xserve costs up to $2,949, while a similarly configured Pystar OpenServ is available in a comparable stripped down form for just $1,599.”
