SDS with Datacore on a Zealbox Storage Appliance

The universal solution

For example, Starline developed the Zealbox Storage Appliance (ZSA) as a platform for DataCore’s SANsymphony SDSsoftware. It is a server equipped with current and also powerful hardware components in each case. Datacore SANsymphony is pre-installed and pre-configured there as virtualization software.

In fact, the ZSA only serves as a concept template for the later appliance. After all, the corresponding server must be integrated into the existing system. Our expert also adapts it exactly to the customer’s requirements.
