iOS/macOS Build Machines

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 your iOS app development and testing needs.

Our engineers will work with your team to develop a scalable solution on dedicated Apple Mac hardware connected to lightning-fast flash storage to create an incredibly reliable and efficient iOS build infrastructure platform for your team.

Scalable Mac Infrastructure

Growing problems with your in-house Mac servers? Let us do the heavy lifting. MacStadium can provide dedicated Mac infrastructure at any scale.

We can work with you to design and build a scalable, hosted private cloud of Mac servers equipped with flash storage and anything else you’ll need to provide a service to your company or customers. It’s a mix of services you can’t get anywhere else.

Perhaps you offer a CI product and want to allow your customers access to macOS for iOS development. You might be a Fortune 500 company and needs hundreds of Mac servers for your internal app development team. We can do it. We’ve done big deployments a time or two or three.

If you wish to consolidate your Linux/Windows infrastructure at MacStadium but don’t need Mac hardware, we’ll provision an additional HP blade environment giving you a powerful, hybrid private cloud environment hosted at MacStadium.

Creative Uses for Hosted Macs

Not all of our customers use MacStadium infrastructure for CI/CD or large-scale app development. There are so many ways to use a hosted Mac... what's yours?

Mobile

iOS build machine

An Apple Mac mini server is a cost-effective solution for individuals and small teams who are building or testing an iOS app. Set up a Mac mini as a build server and send jobs to and from your local machine. Develop locally while the remote server builds a new version of the app, tests it, and sends it back to your local machine. Add more Macs as your development needs grow.

Remote Access

Remote access

Who wants to manage an onsite Mac computer lab? Not one of our university customers. Their students complete their Mac projects by virtually accessing Macs hosted in our data center. Need to travel light? Take your iPad with you and use a hosted Mac to manage macOS remotely to run programs, complete specific tasks, or store your data and backups.

Web Server

Web server

Use a Mac mini to host your company's website. Manage your own email or DNS server. Run a database server using FileMaker. Self-host your Git management software with GitLab. Heck, even host your own Minecraft server! The possibilities are endless. You provide the inspiration, we'll provide the Mac hardware to make it happen.
