Rack 'Em Up!
Mac mini computers make sweet servers for most applications. However, integrating them into a rack poses some challenges. How do you securely mount the minis? How do you keep them cool? How do you turn them on without pulling them out of the rack? How do you plug in a thumb drive for a quick update? Sonnet's RackMac mini solves all these challenges and more!
Sonnet products are good but horrendously overpriced
This review is from: Sonnet RACK-MIN-2X RackMac mini - 1U Rack Kit for 2 Mac mini Server
Pros: I got this to rack mount a pair of minis, one 2011 model server and a 2010 model with optical drive. Both run Server 10.8 and operate via Remote Desktop. It serves the purpose just great.
Cons: There is USB access on the front panel but none for firewire.
Other Thoughts: This is basically a metal box with some foam to cushion the minis and hold them in place, along with USB extension cables going to front mounted ports and buttons with linkage to actuate the power buttons on the minis. Why Sonnet thinks it should cost what it does is a mystery. But then the same thing can be said about all of their products.
