MacStadium Notes: A review of 2017 and one big announcement
As 2017 comes to a close, we want to take a moment to share with you what has been happening at MacStadium this year. This has been a busy year for us! We surpassed 20,000 hosted Macs with hundreds of thousands of customer CI builds per day. We introduced new products and tools for our customers, expanded data centers, and added new people (a lot of new people!). Let’s take a look at a few of these items from a great year:
Customer Portal and Community Forum
The MacStadium customer admin portal interface was completely redesigned, and new features were added including multi-user/multi-role access, easier subscription management, and new security features for confidential tickets. Read about the changes in our announcement post. We launched a new community forum website where anyone interested in CI/CD, Mac hosting or iOS DevOps can publicly share knowledge, experiences and best practices with others in the community, making all of our lives easier. It’s just getting started, but we’d love your participation.
New and Expanded Data Centers
To meet the needs of our customers, we have been growing our data center space in multiple locations.
In Las Vegas, we expanded our data center space to make room for more Mac private clouds and hundreds of Mac minis migrated from Macminicolo. In Atlanta, we made a significant investment in a new flagship data center. It will provide high-end enterprise grade infrastructure, increased security and more growth capacity. With this new location we’ll be able to offer the latest tools from Cisco, VMware and other partners. Much more on these options will be sent out to customers as they are made available. In Frankfurt…wait…Frankfurt? Yes! For the first time publicly, we’re excited to announce a new facility in Germany that came online at the end of 2017. To complement our Dublin location, Mac private clouds are now available for our customers in a second European location. One of our hard working engineers made the video below as they built out the new location.
In 2017, we once again made the Inc 500 and the Deloitte Technology Fast 500. We completed a financial round working with Summit Partners and Noro-Moseley Partners. This has allowed us to expand quicker and nearly double our employees with more engineers, support staff and company leadership. Interested in joining us?
Looking Ahead to 2018
As always, we are committed to providing our customers with the best enterprise Mac hosting solutions. Thank you for your continued support, and here’s to a prosperous 2018!
