Hardware FAQ

Can I save money by supplying my own server?

Nope! The requirements of realtime audio processing in a networked environment present a somewhat unique set of problems, problems that we here at ASTi have been working with since the company was founded so many moons ago. Our systems and hardware are developed as an integrated package to provide you with the highest performance. Over time we have seen a vast range of performance variations between what appear to be similar platforms. It would be a great misconception to assume that all servers are created equal!

The Voisus and Telestra platforms and software are designed and supported as integrated systems. We could conceivably use a different platform, but it would have to be provided to us to check for compatibility. Of course, we would charge for this service and to be honest I don't think you'd like to know just how horribly expensive that just might be!
