Colocation, colo for short, means that you place the Mac mini that you own in our secure data center. We supply power, bandwidth, and physical security allowing your Mac mini to be ‘hosted’ on the internet. You can access its desktop or its command line interface. You can use it for file storage, web & database hosting, an e-mail server, or some of the built in OS X Server tools such as calendar, address book, wiki servers, etc. Because the hardware is compatible with Windows and Linux you can configure it anyway you’d like before sending your mini to our data center.
