CacheGuard Appliance

CacheGuard Appliance is a bare metal or virtual machine powered by CacheGuard-OS. The result is called CacheGuard-HW (for CacheGuard Hardware) or CacheGuard-VE (for CacheGuard Virtual Edition). To build CacheGuard-HW or CacheGuard-VE, we install CacheGuard-OS on a machine with appropriate resources (CPU, RAM…) and provide you with the resulted ready to plug network appliance.

Please note that while delivering customized virtual appliances are often within our reach, we deliver hardware appliances only as far as possible. This is due to the complexity of laws related to hardware warranty in different countries and the complexity related to the hardware support. That being said, if you need a ready to plug hardware appliance, you do not need to worry! We usually give advice free of charge on the choice of the hardware resources and on parameters to select during CacheGuard-OS installation.
