These innovative patents allow for quick and efficient deployment of Apple computing infrastructure across a diverse geographic network serving global software development teams.
ATLANTA, GA, July 27, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- MacStadium, Inc., the leading Mac hosting provider of dedicated servers and private cloud hosting solutions to enterprise clients and software developers around the world, today announced the issuance of US Patent No. D762,217 and US Patent No. D761,246. Both patents relate to designs for customized enclosures for small form servers made by Apple deployed in commercial data center facilities in the U.S. and Europe.
Combining MacStadium's proprietary data center rack designs with innovative engineering techniques and commercially available network adapters, MacStadium is able to transition the small form factor design of the Apple Mac mini and Mac Pro computers into enterprise class computing environments for mobile application development and large scale continuous integration development and testing environments. MacStadium currently holds 2 patents with several other applications pending relating to energy efficient data center infrastructure technology.
MacStadium's new patents demonstrate a commitment to innovation and a continued focus on helping businesses meet their needs for cross platform mobile application software development and testing infrastructure. Apple Mac mini's energy efficient design exceeds the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR requirements by up to 7 times promoting the Mac mini as the world's most energy efficient desktop computer. Because of the reduced heat generated by the Mac mini at full power, MacStadium is able to use one of its two new patented designs to increase the density and footprint of Mac mini servers in a data center environment up to 5 times when compared to conventional rack infrastructure. This leads to improved performance and power consumption per square foot for managing these server assets in a private, dedicated data center environment.
"These innovative patents allow for quick and efficient deployment of Apple computing infrastructure across a diverse geographic network serving global software development teams," said MacStadium's CEO and co-inventor, Greg McGraw. "We are very proud of the innovation and advancements to data center deployment methodologies and the improvements in energy efficiency related to our Infrastructure-as-a-Service offerings that MacStadium's engineering team continues to demonstrate," added Jason Michaud, MacStadium's President and co-inventor on the patents.
