I bet a ton of "smart hubs" will start popping up soon. Similar to Revolv http://revolv.com
This is exactly what I'm worried about. Apple slipped up with the cylindrical form factor. Had they gone with a design similar to the Dell PowerEdge T620 they could have both targeted the Pro market and at the same time the server market.For example I have several Xserves hosting petabytes of storage on XSAN over 10gbe fibre that will need viable replacements in a couple of years.I'd love to continue running OS X to manage it, but without real server hardware from Apple I...
Just because the Mac Pro is a considered a "workstation" doesn't mean it can't include server class parts. I would love the option of having redundant power supplies and lights out management and expansion via internal slots versus being limited by Thunderbolt 2 throughput.
It's not a server but uses server class CPUs and can run OS X Server. No reason for Apple to hold back, the Dell PowerEdge T620 starts at $1,199.00 and goes up from there based on configuration (a lot more than 200 configurations BTW)Dell PowerEdge T620 Pricing:http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/poweredge-t620/pd?~ck=anav
Ok so I should look past the Mac Pro benchmarks indicating a 12 core Xeon E5-2697 V2 (server CPU)?http://www.primatelabs.com/blog/2013/11/estimating-mac-pro-performance/Or maybe ignore intel's page listing several servers using the same chip (including the Dell T620)?http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/benchmarks/server/xeon-e5-2600-v2/xeon-e5-2600-v2-summary.htmlThe Mac Pro does use a server class Xeon on the high end.Just for kicks, you can even find the same Xeon...
