ImageOne of the more popular uses for the Mac minis in our data center is to run a web server. The minis have incredible performance for this service. At one point, I was serving 3.5 million hits per month off of one G4 server. The Intel minis are naturally much better with more RAM allowed.

DNSMadeEasy.com – a great service for DNS
