Looking for an OS X virtual server.

Needs to be in the USA/(Canada Torronto or Montreal)

Anyone know of a host I could use?

Budget is up to $80 a month.

I know I can rent a mac mini for this price, but would rather have a VM.

Thanks

I’m not an expert on this, but I don’t think that this is legal within the EULA of OS X. OS X must be installed natively (e.g. on a Macbook {Pro/Air} / iMac).

Yes this is right. You can not have OS X unless it was built by apple and it very hard to get a VM to work OS X. No host will do this unless they have Mac mini sitting around.

Installing OS X on VirtualBox is easy enough, I’m sure this would be possible on KVM, Xen, or VMware. As others have mentioned there is no valid licensing available for this so don’t be surprised if your host suspends the vps when/if they realize what OS is running.

The legal option is to buy/rent a dedicated server pre-installed with the OS. Older Mac minis are available at low monthly prices. http://www.macminivault.com might be worth a look.
