Upgrade to V3 Appliance

Version 1.1 March 31, Updated March 2017


This document referes to a general question about appliance upgrade.


Appliance v2.X

Why shoud I upgrade?

The primary reason to upgrade to a version 3 appliance is that version 2 cannot support TLS versions higher than 1.0, which is now considered obsolete and insecure. Upgrading from version 2 to version 3 involves a complete rebuild, as the operating system is different. Version 4 will use the same operating system as version 3, so there will be an upgrade path.

EOL - When will it happen?
