Computer Hardware

PBO is currently utilizing non-proprietary hardware for its operation.  Non-proprietary hardware is readily available from many different sources at very  reasonable prices.  This has allowed us to have backup equipment available when equipment has malfunctioned.  We have also found several sources locally to service components, however, we have serviced much of our own equipment.  We have never lost a day of production because of equipment failure.

Our hardware configuration consists of a multi-processor servers with 4 gig meg of memory and 500 gigabytes of storage.  We utilize a DAT tape drive system for backup with offsite storage.  Our Appleton and Rockford offices are connected to us through secure VPN.
