We invite you to take one of our Mac minis for a spin. We offer 24 hour demos to test out speeds and software configurations. Give it a try!
We're a small group based outside Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Many of us have founded our own hosting/web companies that were acquired by Mac Mini Vault's parent company, CyberLynk. We are all highly skilled engineers with various wheelhouses; OS X, VMware, Linux, Windows, Cisco, VoIP. Our customer service and technical expertise is highly valued by our customers.
We are the only provider of Mac mini hosting that offers two data center options. The benefits of hosting with Mac Mini Vault do not stop there. We've worked hard to bring the most features and capabilities to market at the most competitive price.
We simply do not believe in constantly charging customers for every little thing. If you need an OS re-installed, or a video dongle hooked up to your machine you shouldn't have to worry about charges or monthly add-on costs.

Monthly service costs can be deceptive. When choosing a host be sure to compare all the features. What will it cost if something breaks? What if I want a faster port? Is IPv6 connectivity available? Our goal is to deliver the best service and the most value.
We're your hands and eyes and can assist with diagnosing and repairing your issue.
We feel the need. The need for speed. Our Mac mini colocation plans come with a 1 Gbps network uplink.
We eat, breathe, and sleep Apple. We spend a lot of time with OS X.
Access bandwidth graphs and remote power controls within your customer portal.
We run a dual stack network at both our data centers with multiple IPv4 and IPv6 peers.
We do a lot of testing and scripting to help customers out with common tasks. code.macminivault.com
Have questions? No worries. We are here to help.
Each Mac mini has a 1 Gbps network connection a few hops away from the public internet. Each data center has multiple bandwidth providers and we make sure all of our connections have plenty of available bandwidth. To summarize, "very fast".
Well yes and no. We don't automatically pack it up and ship it to you. Your colocation service keeps renewing until you cancel that. We treat the Mac mini as owned by you at that point and only invoice the colo fees.
Colocation (colo for short) is where a customer owns their equipment and pays a data center for rack space, bandwidth, and power. Over the long term this is a tremendous savings over leasing equipment. When you no longer need the server hosted we ship it back to you.
Many many things. Use it as a server. Load ESXi on it and run OS X, Linux, or Windows Virtual Machines. Host Mac specific software (Filemaker, Daylite, Xcode, Jenkins, etc). Personal remote workstation. Off site backup/redundancy. Software development and testing. Plus many more use cases.
We are one of the few companies that will load Windows or Linux (CentOS/Ubuntu Server LTS) on a bare metal Mac mini. We also offer ESXi which is great for virtualization. You can also virtualize inside your OS X, Windows, or Linux OS as well. You'll most likely want an additional IP for each VM.
Very reliable. If you had to choose a weak point of the Mac mini, it'd be the hard drive. Performing backups to a second drive and using our Enterprise colocation plan will ensure that when the day comes that your hard drive finally stops spinning, you won't have data loss or any unexpected bills. We'll handle the hardware repair and data restore free of charge.
