The Zealbox servers are conceived especially for the use with Microsoft Windows 2012 R2 and VMware vSphere.
The server in the Z30 Series are based on an elaborated overall concept: open platform with powerful hardware like the Supermicro X9 board with Intel "Sandy Bridge"-architecture, a redundant cooling concept and outstanding expandability. It is possible to use up to 2 processors from the Intel E5-2600 Series. Only high-end components are used in the Zealbox servers coming from manufacturers like Intel, Supermicro, Areca and LSI.
An implementation of the servers is possible without extra installation effort – according to the choice either Microsoft Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V or VMware vSphere is completely installed and optimized for the hardware. On error the systems can be recovered in shortest time with the enclosed recovery USB stick.
High-quality DDR3-RAM with ECC guarantees a reliable usage and corrects bit mistakes automatically. Up to 8 disk drives can be integrated directly in the case, the built-in hardware SAS RAID-Controller provides high data transfer rates. To protect the operating system, two 15k or 10k rpm, SAS HDDs with 300 GB capacity each are running with RAID level 1.
All Zealbox server dispose of an IPMI interface with dedicated LAN port. Settings can be thereby carried out already at BIOS level from a distance as well as supervised all status announcements centrally. Temperature-steered fans and the redundant PSU with 80 PLUS PLATINUM/GOLD certification allow an energy-efficient usage of the Zealbox server.
Starting the servers is possible without set up efford – according Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V or VMware vSphere 5 is completely installed and adapted on the hardware. If a mistake occurs, a recovery USB-Stick is provided to run the servers in the shortest time again.
