    Yes.. it would be handy on the XServe, especially since it doesn't seem to have redundant power supplies.

    lack of redundant power supplies bothers me. I don't think I have anything on my rack that doesn't have them...

    I don't think there are many 1U-servers with redundand power supply at all.

    *shrugs* I don't own any 1U servers. Time for apple to lead the way on that then

    I'm sure a JFS will be available eventually. I've seen quotes from Apple Engineers that basically say the they DO have some drawbacks(of which I do not know) but OSX has the infrastructure to add a JFS without to much overhauling.

    I believe one drawback is that each write to a JFS is slower. Not noticeably to a human, but in computer time it can add up.
