Instant Provisioning is a technology that we have developed here at MacStadium that allows us to deliver ready-to-go dedicated servers to customers 24x7x365 within seconds of checkout.
When you complete checkout, an installation ticket is opened. If the requested server is available for Instant Provisioning, the ticket will be automatically closed out by our systems, and an email is sent to you which includes your servers IP address and login details.
We typically have 50-100 servers ready to go for Instant Provisioning. We strive to keep our most popular models of rental Mac available for Instant Provisioning for both Pro (100Mbps) and Elite (1000Mbps) Hosting packages.
If you are requesting a server that has an OS other than macOS1, you should be prepared to wait 1-2 hours (sometimes longer) for the server to be custom provisioned for your request.
1. macOS may be interchangeable with OS X, the name used for previous versions of Apple's Mac operating system. ↩
