Dan, with deepest respect, sir, have you ever done Virtualization? Do you know how incredibly convenient it is to have an entire server in a folder? One that you can tweak, copy to a different box, throw on a hard drive and toss it on a shelf, ready to re-deploy in a moment?
How wonderful it is to throw together a "sandbox" server that you can try some new product in, without touching anything else? And it if works, you copy it to a production VM server box and you're off to the races. Having lived this way...I have no desire to go back.
So then you should just be able to collapse the services onto a single server that runs multiple services.
That what I've done for years...what we've all done...that's really the essence of OS X server in it's present incarnation. But I'm tired of living that way....tired of the fear that comes with any new service or product that I want to try, the fear that it's going to take my perfectly tuned production server and pooch it.
I don't have to live that way anymore......and I like it. And it means I spend less time screwing around with servers....I like that even more.
I am quite sure that even now you composing a vigorous reply, casting aspersions on my abilties as a sysadmin, asserting that I am a lesser man for not wanting to do it the old way.
Whatever. I suspect I'm not alone in my assessment. Apple is behind in this area....and it will hurt them in the long run.
