RackMac mini Secures Two Mac mini Servers in a 1U Rack Space

Sonnet Technologies today introduced its RackMac mini rackmount solution for the latest line of Mac mini servers and computers. Ideal for the office or transportable rack use, the unit supports the installation of one or two Mac minis into a 1U rack space. The RackMac mini manages airflow and provides a front panel power switch and USB port for each Mac mini.

Constructed of rugged steel with a black powder-coat finish, the 11-inch deep RackMac mini firmly secures the computers behind a smart front panel. For each Mac mini, the front panel includes DVD, IR sensor and power indicator slots; a power switch; and a USB port. Pressing each computer’s power button, connecting a keyboard or mouse, or attaching a USB drive is simple.

A padded locking bar securely holds the Mac minis in place for transportable rack use. Convenient cable tie points allow all cables to be secured as well. The RackMac mini comes pre-assembled.

Enclosed inside the RackMac mini, Mac minis keep ambient temperature chill for reliable operation. The Sonnet rackmount solution’s design prevents recirculation of hot air around the Mac minis, insuring that cool air goes in a one-way path through the front panel openings to the computers’ air intakes, exiting out the rear.

“The Mac mini server is a great server for most applications. The remaining challenges have been how to securely mount them, how to reliably cool them, and how to turn them on without pulling them out of the rack,” said Robert Farnsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies. “The RackMac mini is the perfect solution. Just add Mac minis.”

RackMac mini (part number RACK-MIN-2X) is available immediately with a suggested retail price of $169.95.
