Orka 3.0

Get started with Orka Toolkit

Manipulating virtual machines has become a core skill for DevOps engineers, developers, and operations administrators. Orka Toolkit is a desktop virtualization program that allows you to create and manage macOS virtual machines locally with an easy-to-use interface (CLI/UI). 

This is an ideal tool for those who want to learn more about Mac virtualization and get a feel for the basics of a Continuous Integration (CI) pipeline.

Single-use VMs, on demand

Unlike real hardware, VMs are disposable. Single-use VMs, which are - spun up, used once for building or testing and then torn down, provide the most trustworthy, repeatable results because everything on the VM is freshly installed each time. This practice of using ephemeral (lasting for a very short time) VMs is now an industry-standard in development.

Built by developers, for developers

MacStadium has been focused on building cloud solutions to simplify Mac for business worldwide for a decade. We are the only cloud provider to support and scale virtualization solutions on Mac hardware and the creators of Orka®, the first and only solution for orchestrating macOS in a cloud environment for Apple development on Apple hardware.
