Why Use Anka to build your Cloud?
Clarity Mac Cloud provides Anka as a platform. The benefit of Clarity Mac Cloud is there are a number of virtualization hypervisors. Anka virtualization is one of those options. Basically, it enables the configuration of a macOS cloud on Mac Mini and Mac Pro servers. Anka is also a native macOS hypervisor that uses Apple’s macOS hypervisor framework for virtualization. So Anka Cloud platform works well if you operate a lot of builds as part of a Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline.
