Atlanta-based Mac hosting provider MacStadium announced on Monday that it has raised $1 million in Series A funding from a private angel investor, according to a report by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

MacStadium provides dedicated Mac Mini and Mac Pro hosting, as well as an Apple-centric infrastructure-as-a-service for developers. The funding round will help it grow its iOS testing platform, as well as its product development and marketing, the report said.

The funding will also help it accelerate expansion into Europe and APAC. MacStadium says that by bringing Mac minis closer to the developers, it can cut its network latency loss to increase testing efficiency.

MacStadium said it is expecting revenues of $2.4 million this year. It is seeing a 15 percent increase in demand every month, according to the report.

The company hosts around 3,000 Apple Mac minis in a data center in Georgia. In an interview with Cult of Mac in November, MacStadium CEO Greg McGraw said that while it has seen great success with developers, the Mac Pro has opened up the opportunity to serve the enterprise market.
