If you are registering and have an immediate need for five or more machines, you will first need to verify your billing information before you can order them. We still suggest customers take advantage of the free Mac mini trial even if they use it to test their network connection quality and that their configuration meets their requirements.
For customers who add new subscriptions once a week or more slowly, the regular configuration tool is the best approach to spinning up individual machines as it gives our system the ability to instantly provision minis already staged.
After your registration is complete, you can either complete a single subscription or head into your customer dashboard to order multiple servers. If you would rather get five or more machines at once and you can provide the technical specifications for each Mac (or you need something not shown in the configuration wizard), open up a support ticket with the Other type and submit your request to our support team. Our staff will work with you to confirm the requirements and begin spinning up the machines as soon as possible. Once the requested Macs are racked in our data center and online our staff will grant you access from within the ticket. Our support team is familiar with large orders and can spin up dozens of minis at a time.
Customers wanting a new machine or machines with the exact same software image as an existing subscription can have the source machine cloned to any number of other machines by opening a support ticket. Be aware that cloning is a time-intensive task based on the amount of data being copied and that it also requires the server be down for as long as the cloning process takes.
