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.
