Hardware for Reliability, Security and Performance

DNSBOX-hardwareWe pay the same attention to detail with hardware as we do with software. Some appliance vendors use standard “appliance” units from large server vendors to make their own lives easier. But ApplianSys is careful to design products which are fit-for-purpose to make your life easier. Using industrial grade components, DNSBOX is optimised for reliability and performance.

Solid State storage for security, reliability and redundancy

  • DNSBOX uses Solid State Drives (SSDs) for more reliability, faster boot times and more resilience to hardware failure – minimising the risk of data or application corruption
  • A neat dual CompactFlash architecture gives you extra redundancy:
    • The Program Card holds DNSBOX’s application software and operating system and is mounted read-only – so more secure
    • The Data Card holds the appliance’s configuration and DDI data so in the unlikely event of failure, swapping cards to a spare or replacement appliance causes minimal disruption

Matching hardware to workload

DNSBOX comes in different hardware models to handle different performance levels:

  • Components are carefully selected to match each performance requirement
  • High quality chassis, keeping size to the minimum needed, help minimise costs of space, power and heat
