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.
