[Anand] In-Depth with Mac OS X Lion Server

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Mac OS X Server costs 5% of what it cost just three years ago. Whatever your needs and whatever the software’s shortcomings, this is hard to ignore. Leopard Server cost $999 for an unlimited-client license, Snow Leopard Server cost $499, and Lion Server costs $50.

For this reason alone, Lion Server will (and should) attract the attention of people who have never been in the market for server software before - home users, in particular - but it has to do so without alienating the business and education customers who currently rely on the software. These are Lion Server’s challenges: is there a real point in having it at home? And as a comparatively-dirt-cheap App Store download, is it lacking in features and power compared to previous versions?

Good read as usual from Anand. Looks decent enough for SOHO use.

50 dolla for server? Good lordy! Thats a pretty sweet deal. I got to mess around with Server years ago... I think it was on Panther.... The pricing is unbelievable. Maybe it's time to pick up a first gen Mac Pro and build a server....

The price is enticing, seems like a good entry level way to start.

Urgh, no thanks. I'd go for a LAMP setup if I wanted a server.

I'm assuming he is saying you wouldn't use for anything out there already since you already got Windows and Linux distro in that market.
