Apple announced a server edition of it’s popular Mac Mini back in October of last year. This was a pretty neat idea but didn’t necessarily surprise me.
It’s price wasn’t too bad either starting at less than a grand ($999).
Built with Mac OS X, it’s built with open standards and includes a host of enterprise-grade technologies.
Things like Open Directory, hosting platforms (Apache, BIND for DNS hosting and Dovecot-based mail service), collaboration tools, deployment/client management tools, and print services.
Everything you’d probably expect, right?
With an easy setup, backup, and management, this might just be the thing for a small ministry and/or church.
Just my 2 cents, of course.
What do you think? Mac Mini Server a good choice for a small church and/or organization?
Or am I just crazy?
