Last I checked Apple was still shipping the XServes with SATA drives and a
PROMISE controller, both very consumer-grade (and not server-grade) hardware.
I can't recommend the XServe as a database platform. SCSI still makes a
difference for databases, more because of the controllers than anything else.
