SHARED STORAGE + SO MUCH MORE…


latform uses the most powerful processors in the world to create an infinitely expandable server system with more compatibility and expansion than any other system. Rather than creating just another shared storage system, we built Platform to increase the functionality of any workgroup or facility with the concept of Modularity image that enables Platform to do much more than just shared storage…
