Application Processing Unit (APU)
Discover more than just a server. PlantStar’s APUs are industrial-grade powerhouses that are designed to run your database and take care of the heavy lifting required for leveraging big data. The Application Processing Unit runs the PlantStar application server and contains all the configuration, data, files, and the master database. Available in both high performance server grade tower and rack mount configurations, and also available for VM deployments, the PlantStar APU fits your IT requirements. And, like all PlantStar hardware, it’s covered with Advance Replacement warranty service (physical servers only) as long as your PlantStar Software License and Maintenance Contract remains in place.Download Data Sheet
