FAQs

What is the best environment for me?

Most of our customers choose a private cloud. A hosted private cloud has the most flexibility, scalability, security, and performance. We also offer individual dedicated Macs if you do not need the scale of a private cloud.

I’m interested in a single Mac mini… what should I do?

The best option is to sign up online with a credit card - you’ll be up and running almost immediately. A dedicated mini will perform almost exactly like a mini sitting on your desk… just with more security, better uptime, and higher bandwidth. There is even a 24-hour trial so you can check performance and bandwidth.

How does MacStadium help with continuous integration (CI) projects?

iOS and macOS developers practicing CI/CD require dedicated Mac hardware to build and test their apps. We provide this service for everyone from individual developers to growing startups and Fortune 100 organizations.

Whether you want to get started with Jenkins on a single Mac mini, manage multiple Mac servers running a Buildkite agent, or deploy a hosted Mac Pro private cloud running VMware for large-scale CI and CD, MacStadium has a solution for all iOS app development and testing needs. 

We can provide a cluster of Mac servers, SAN storage and a managed firewall -- everything you need to create virtual machines to test and build on for CI. Our cloud solution is highly scalable and redundant.
