Data storage configuration

Configuration & installation

Reduce your installation and set-up time by allowing us to pre-configure your system.

We will build a system with drives, and then test it before shipping. It will arrive ready for our professional installers to quickly rack and complete set-up. All you need to do is provide us with your desired network configuration info and we'll do the rest. If you don't want to share any details with us then we'll give you as much support as you need to get the system set-up once it has been physically installed.


JetStor support

We will provide an appropriate SLA for your specific needs, wherever you are based in Europe. If you're out of region then we can still help you, but we'll probably work with a local service partner to improve response times.
