After a month's delay, Apple Computer has begun shipping its single-processor Xserve G5 server and plans to release the dual-processor version in April.
Several of the one-chip machines have now been delivered into its customers' hands. The Xserve G5 is an all-new version of Apple's 1U (1.75-inch-thick) rack-mount server. It is designed for jobs as simple as handling office e-mail or as complex as crunching numbers for biotech researchers. The Xserve G5 is based around IBM's PowerPC 970FX processor, which Apple calls the PowerPC G5. Apple, based in Cupertino Calif., originally planned to ship the Xserve G5 in February. However, shipments were delayed into March. "We're on track now," said Alex Grossman, director of hardware storage for Apple.
