Does MacStadium have the first rack-mounted Mac Pro that's out in the wild?
## What you need to know
- Apple’s Mac Pro comes in two versions.
- One can be rack-mounted.
- MacStadium might be the first to get hold of one.
When Apple announced the 2019 Mac Pro it confirmed that there would be a version specifically designed to be mounted in racks in data centers. Attention immediately turned to the team at MacStadium, a company that has buildings full of Macs that you can use remotely. And they have a new Mac Pro to play with.
MacStadium VP Brian Stucki is usually a good bet for some new Mac Pro hotness, and he’s back sharing news of the company’s latest arrival – a rack-mounted Mac Pro.

He also commented on the machine itself, noting that “the rails are so simple to install and are as smooth as a brand new tub of butter.” That’ll be music to the ears of anyone who has fought to get a server into a rack before. Trust me, it can be one of the most frustrating things you’ll come across.
Almost as infuriating as dealing with Apple’s lack of family iCloud Photos support. Not that I’m bitter.
