Renton, WA – May 11, 2011 – Parallels today announced the launch of Parallels Server for Mac 4.0 Mac mini Edition (www.parallels.com/macmini), a new edition of its one-of-a-kind Mac server virtualization solution optimized for Mac minis running Mac OS X server software. Parallels Server for Mac 4.0 Mac mini Edition lets businesses turn an Apple Mac mini server running Mac OS X Server into a multi-purpose platform capable of running Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems and their applications side by side. Tailored specifically for small businesses that need to consolidate a few servers, Parallels makes it simple to provide mission critical software on a cost-effective Mac mini.
“Businesses are increasingly taking advantage of the Mac mini as an affordable alternative to traditional servers. Smart organizations can get even more performance and savings from their Mac mini server by using Parallels Server for Mac 4.0 Mac mini Edition to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same box,” said Kim Johnston, Vice President of Marketing at Parallels. “Businesses can reduce their need for different hardware platforms, saving space, power and administration time, while easily adding new services without the need to increase the budget for additional hardware purchases.”
“Our business has used a Mac mini as a primary server for a few years, but we also had to run a separate Windows server for applications such as Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint. Thanks to Parallels Server for Mac 4.0 Mac mini Edition, we consolidated everything onto our Mac mini and saved money, space and time. One of our favorite features is remote administration of the Parallels Management Console for easy deployment and backing up of virtual machines,” said Bruce Rubin, owner and developer of Radical Design Software and Oribus.
Parallels Server 4.0 Mac mini Edition is the only server virtualization solution optimized for Apple server hardware. Its features, capabilities and benefits include:
