Server Hardware

FalconStor certifies and supports many types of server hardware for its software solutions. To help make deployments easier, FalconStor EZStart was developed for widely-used hardware. FalconStor EZStart enables partners and customers to quickly create turnkey appliances using certified off-the-shelf hardware.

All devices on this Certification Matrix have been certified in our Interoperability Lab or within our partners’ labs to work with the latest versions of our software. Older hardware models have been certified with previous software versions, which are specified below. FalconStor tests as many possible operating system, hardware, and software combinations as possible. Even with this extensive testing, the exact versions at your site may differ slightly from those tested.

For information about server hardware certified with previous FalconStor product versions, check our Archived Server Hardware page.

All equipment is certified as of the date it was added to this matrix. FalconStor is not responsible for any operational problems resulting from modifications made by the equipment manufacturer after the equipment was certified. This list is subject to change at any time without notice. Different FalconStor products can use the same model appliance, but may have different hardware requirements (such as amount of RAM, number of drives, etc.).
