When the Apple Store came back up after this morning's Tuesday outage, I thought the new $49 price tag on the shuffle summed up the changes.
But I was wrong.
Xsan2 has been released. See apple.com/xsan
And we have a big change up at apple.com/server/storage
We don't have new Xserve RAIDs, not exactly.
It looks like Xserve RAID has been replaced with Promise's "VTrak E-Class RAID" units.
It is the same 3U, but instead of 14 drives, the Promise holds 16 drives.
Instead of PATA, now we have the choice of SATA or SAS. (750GB for SATA and 300GB for SAS drives). 12TB raw capacity if you want one big dangerous RAID 0 LUN.
4Gb/s FC instead of 2Gb/s.
Dual active/active controllers.
And of course, it supports Xsan 2.
