Cleversafe has certified the HP ProLiant SL4540 Generation 8 (Gen8)
server as a Slicestor® appliance. Cleversafe has also certified the
Dispersed Storage Network (dsNet®) Manager and Accesser® on the HP
ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server.

of large scale data repositories and provides the availability and
reliability required to handle customers' most critical digital assets.
