Mac Host Types + Performance

Below, you will find a breakdown of the various Mac Pro machine types available for facilitating private Mac clouds.

Note:

Processing Cores represents the total processing capacity of a given machine. Conversely, Processing Speed represents the speed at which a given job can be completed.

When selecting host machine varieties, most MacStadium customers seek to strike a balance between the volume of computation that they need to do, the speed at which a given job (i.e. a CI build) should be completed, and finally the cost involved.

Proprietary MacStadium Upgrades:

Rack-mountable Sleds:
MacStadium's patented "sleds" allow the cylindrical Mac Pro to be rack-mounted with hot/cold isle containment while still giving our techs the ability to access the machines for troubleshooting and maintenance. 2018 Mac minis are also racked in patented sleds with active cooling and hot/cold isle containment.

Redundant, 10G Network:
We add dual 10G fiber ethernet for network connectivity via a Thunderbolt 2 port on Mac Pros. This allows the Mac Pro to function as an enterprise server in a VMware cloud.

Redundant Storage Fabric:
We also add redundant high-speed storage connectivity on a separate Thunderbolt 2 bus on all Mac Pros. This allows Mac Pros to communicate with high-speed SAN arrays via Fibre Channel (SMB), or Ethernet (NFS or iSCSI)

Redundant Power:
Redundant power is provided via top-of-rack ATS units to ensure that each Mac receives stable, conditioned power. This improves uptime by maintaining steady power and reducing stress on the Mac's on-board power supply.
