Apple Mac Hosting Provider MacStadium Opens Dublin-based European Headquarters
9 November 2016
Apple Mac hosting provider MacStadium has opened new European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. MacStadium, which has global headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, bills itself as “the world's largest hosting provider of dedicated Apple Mac computers with dedicated server rentals, co-location, and Mac Pro private clouds”. The company is the world’s only provider of Mac Pro private cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Its new European headquarters will create 35 jobs over the next three years.
Established in 2012, MacStadium is listed 44th on the Inc. 5000 listing. The company offers a patented platform to provide services to software developers in more than 50 countries. The company has received more than $7 million in investment from a number of organisations including Silicon Valley Bank, Apple Financial Services, Data Sales Co and Grange, Ltd. (Dublin). Its presence in Dublin will make it easier for the company to find customers in the EMEA region.
“Ireland was our first choice for global expansion and Dublin is a great location for our international headquarters,” explained MacStadium’s CEO Greg McGraw in an interview with Tristateupdate.com. “Partnering with Keppel Data Centres in Dublin has allowed us to quickly ramp up operations to serve the European mobile software development community. Our planned expansion to APAC in early 2017 with Keppel is a great extension of our Ireland base to further international growth. This launch was made easier by local assistance from key individuals as well as a talented workforce that’s already producing benefits. We are excited to call Ireland our new international home and a key hub for our global future,” he added.
