What’s Best—Shared or Dedicated Mac Mini Servers?
There is a difference between a shared and dedicated Mac Mini server. If you need an ultra-fast connection to your server at all times and will be accessing it heavily during peak hours, then a dedicated Mac Mini server is ideal. Dedicated Mac Mini Servers will place the system resources of the entire server in your hands. In contrast, a shared Mac Mini Server is shared with other users.
While files and applications will be secured and only accessible to you, the end user, shared servers are prone to slower connectivity during peak hours. This is because the system resources are shared among all the users so you will have to compete with others during peak hours. Using a shared Mac Mini is perfect if your network needs is limited or if your website doesn’t experience a lot of traffic.
If you have trouble deciding between a shared or dedicated Mac Mini server our qualified technicians are on hand to assist you in the decision making process.
