Fick via bloggen reda på att MediaTemple nu kör igång med en privat betatestning av virtualiserade Leopard Server-installationer på Apple Xserves. Schysst för alla som vill ha funktionaliteten hos Leopard Server men inte behöver all kraft och inte vill punga ut alla dollars.

Ska bli intressant att se vilka ytterligare "premium" webhosts som kommer att erbjuda detta, och framförallt intressant att se reaktionerna från kunderna. Intresset har ju funnits länge, nu gäller det bara att finslipa tjänsterna runt omkring vilket jag som mt-kund tycker att mediatemple är grymma på.
