Custom Appliances and Load Balancers
Sentral has a Design and Manufacturing team that specialises in building custom server appliances whether it be short depth rackmount appliances or special shaped appliances for installation in unique spaces.
Sentral were pioneers of using aluminium for the construction of Server chassis and also presenting the I/O connectivity at the front of the chassis. The aluminium chassis is suited to handle heat dissipation and performs as a large heatsink. Because of the reduced weight afforded by using aluminium chassis, these units can be mounted in a rack without rails and are very easy to install. The chassis can also be powder coated with a preferred colour scheme and optionally screen printed fascias can be designed using customers own company logo. We can build a product using our clients specified hardware or work in conjunction to custom design unique hardware as required.
The basic range of products can be tailored to customers requirements utilising either Intel or AMD processors and be configured with single or dual hard disk drives and multiple Ethernet ports. A single expansion slot allows for additional features to be configured, and in special cases more expansion slots can be accommodated.
We can also assist with pre installing your chosen Windows or Linux OS and configure the appliance accordingly so that it just has to connect to the network and switch on ready to go.
