Mount two Mac minis in a 1U rackmount enclosure with the RackMac mini Rackmount Enclosure from Sonnet. This version of the RackMac mini is designed to fit Mac mini models made from mid 2011 to 2020, including Intel and Apple M1 models, and has been designed to meet the cooling needs of the 2018 and 2020 6-core Mac mini.

Capable of installing two Mac minis side by side into 1U of rack space, the RackMac mini boasts a front panel with two integrated power buttons and two USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 ports, one for each Mac mini system. The back of the RackMac mini is open, allowing for access to cables and ports, while cable tie holes let you secure power cords and other cables. The RackMac mini’s design helps to ensure one-way airflow from the front panel through the back. Top cover padding and rubber bumpers help to protect your hardware during transport.

Please note that this version of the RackMac mini does not have a slot for an optical drive.

General Features

Server-Room Sociable

Constructed of rugged steel, the RackMac mini is a fully-assembled rackmount solution that supports one or two Mac mini computers installed side-by-side into 1 RU of rack space, placing the computers behind a neat front panel.

Updated With Larger Openings to Support Proper Cooling of 2018 and 2020 6-Core Mac minis

The enclosure’s design, updated to properly support 6-core Mac mini models, manages airflow through the computers to keep them as cool as ambient air in the rack as on a desk, enabling you to stack them close and stack them high for a Mac mini server farm.

Front Controlled

The RackMac mini provides front panel access to each Mac mini’s power switch and one of its USB Type-A ports, enabling you to switch each computer on and off, and connect a keyboard, mouse, USB drive, or other USB device.

Road Trip Ready

Do you need to take your mini on the road? The RackMac mini is a perfect travel solution. Its 8.25″ mounting depth, plus firm rubber cushions that securely hold your computers in place during transport, make the RackMac mini ideal for use in molded cases such as Gator Cases or SKB 9″ Shallow Fly Racks. The RackMac mini’s design also allows normal Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless operation in most configurations, depending on rack type and position in rack, so you can use iOS device control apps.

Open View

The RackMac mini provides open access to your computers’ ports at the back of the enclosure.

Cool as a Cucumber

The RackMac mini secures your Mac minis without trapping them in recirculating hot rack air. A strategically designed chamber directs cool air in a one-way path through front panel openings, now twice the air space to provide proper thermal support for the latest Mac mini, to the computers’ air intakes, and then out the back.

Stay Cool

The RackMac mini’s design ensures that cool air goes in a one-way path through the front panel openings to the computers’ air intakes, exiting out the rear. In a single Mac mini configuration, the Sonnet solution’s air dam and strategically-placed seals help keep air from circulating in the unoccupied computer bay. Whether you install one or two Mac minis, the RackMac mini helps prevent recirculation of hot air around the computers to keep them ambient temperature chill and operating reliably.

Status at a Glance

The updated RackMac mini includes dual power/status indicator openings for each computer, allowing its light to shine through whether you’ve installed an older model or the latest.
