Server for Mac 4.0 - Mac mini Edition by Parallels enables you to run multiple platforms such as Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and Linux all on one Mac mini server saving time, money and space. This version allows provisioning of up to two virtual CPUs and 4 GB of RAM vs. twelve virtual CPUs and 64 GB of RAM with the more robust Server for Mac 4.0.

Unlike Parallels Desktop which is geared more for the average consumer, Parallels Server for Mac 4.0 is hardware-optimized and designed for professionals to handle server workloads such as databases and enterprise email. It allows the use of Intel-powered Apple hardware in a business environment without isolating Mac servers from Windows and Linux systems.

Server for Mac 4.0 - Mac Mini Edition supports both 32 and 64-bit platforms and has versatile USB configuration capabilities with automatic detection of removable volumes. It also features easy one-click optimization tools for Windows and Linux virtual machines plus point-and-click migration capabilities for disaster recovery and failover.

Note: The actual number of virtual machines you can run on a Parallels server depends on the resources they require. In general, the more CPU power and memory the server has, the higher is the performance of virtual machines running on it.
