Server Platforms – Apple | Apple Comes to Servers

Apple is well-known for consumer devices, but not as well-known for their server systems. With MacOS Server, it’s easy to manage a Mac or iOS environment using the tools and features your business is already familiar with. It’s designed for businesses of all sizes and can be installed on any Mac. It’s also designed for ease of use so a full-time IT staff isn’t necessary.

Apple also offers OS X Server, which is designed for OS X and iOS devices. It works similarly to MacOS and can be installed on any compatible device.

Ideal for Smaller Businesses

Apple’s server platforms are made for smaller businesses that may not have the resources to manage more complex server platforms, such as Windows and Linux. However, the platforms still provide the tools necessary to create a secure network, share resources, manage devices and collaborate.

Some of the most notable features include:

  • Develop custom software
  • Set up business wikis
  • Configure Mac and iOS devices
  • Host websites
  • Remotely access network resources
  • Collaboration
  • Quick installation with step-by-step guidance
  • Low resource usage
  • User and device management
While it may not be as powerful as other server platforms, it does everything a small business needs, especially in bringing employees together for better collaboration. It’s also ideal for any business that runs all Mac and iOS devices.
