Newcastle's ZebraHosts has introduced a new service to allow Mac users to deploy their Apple machines in dedicated rack space in their data centre.

ZebraHosts has offered server hosting solutions and colocation services to PC users for over five years.

The company's strategic account manager Belinda Kent said: “Due to the capabilities of the Macs, design and creative businesses are increasingly converting to 100 per cent Mac use but despite this we found that rack space dedicated to Macs and backed up by expert technicians is simply not available.”

Kent notes that most creative companies involved (for example) in publishing or graphics would favour a hosting company and server side set-up that offers full Mac support on sites and services.
