Custom Data Center Solutions Designed for MacStadium

 

MacStadium is the leading provider of enterprise-class Apple Mac infrastructure. They provide scalable, reliable, and secure private clouds and dedicated servers that require macOS. Additionally, MacStadium is particularly trusted by iOS developers, mobile testing teams, and DevOps engineers at thousands of companies around the world.

Put a Mac in a Server Rack 

At first, they needed to put three Apple computers in a large-scale enterprise data center. However, none of the computers were intended to be put in a server rack. Since all three computers had entirely different form factors, this meant that each Mac required a different solution.

Off the Shelf to Custom-Made 

MacStadium’s unique product offering of having Apple in the data center meant that they had unique needs. The Mac Mini and the Mac Pro had existing solutions, but they had their limitations. None of the solutions were scalable for enterprise environments, and the iMac Pro had no existing solution at all. They needed someone who specializes in solving unique problems in the data center industry.

The Perfect Partner 

RackSolutions has a long history of creating specialized solutions for the data center industry. Our sales and engineering teams have demonstrated knowledge of data center needs for over 20 years. They can quickly build custom solutions and solve unique problems, which made us the perfect partner for MacStadium. “If we can’t mount it, no one can.”

Solutions Through Clever Design 

We strive to provide easy serviceability and solve unique needs. Since the computers were not meant to be put in a rack, we used clever design to solve MacStadium’s unique problem. In collaboration with MacStadium, we created three custom shelves for the Apple computers to be put in a large-scale enterprise data center environment. These shelves are designed to optimize rack space and airflow so that individuals can be sure that their equipment will last.
