Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server

performance, storage, and expandability. Now preloaded with Mac OS X Server, the
Mac Pro tower form factor can be deployed in an office environment on or under a
desk, or in a data center environment on a shelf in a rack with two units per 12U.
Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server
Since its introduction in the fall of 2009, Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server has become Apple’s most popular server system. It brings great capability in a small,
efficient form factor that is affordable and can be deployed anywhere. Perfect for small business and workgroups of up to 50 people, a single Mac mini can run the full suite of Mac OS X Server services. A single Mac mini can also be deployed as a single-task server for a larger number of users in a business or education environment. Depending on the workload and number of users, a single Xserve could be replaced with one or multiple Mac mini server systems.
During the gradual transition from Xserve, Apple will continue to provide warranty
service and complimentary technical support for the product.1 Apple continues to offer Mac OS X Server on the popular Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server solution
