Apple has announced that it is now marketing its Xserve and Xserve RAID in Taiwan.

According to Apple Asia marketing manager Danny Lam: "Apple has implemented an aggressive pricing structure that will put pressure on rivals IBM, Sun Microsystems, HP, and Dell."

Lam said: "Apple Taiwan will push its sales of Xserve G5 and Xserve RAID storage systems to Taiwan’s biotechnology companies, shops that handle high-resolution images and companies that require high-speed processing power."

He told DigiTimes: " The Xserve 5G performs far better than similar models offered by rivals in DNA and gene sequence analysis. We all expect Apple’s servers to make strong inroads into the local education system and multimedia industry, but declined to predict the company’s sales target."
