Why should an XG customer switch to XGS?
The Xstream Flow Processor in every XGS model provides customers with additional performance improvements in every release, freeing up capacity to scale up protection, and making day-to-day administration more efficient. The newer hardware models also offer many new connectivity options over the legacy models.
This Desk Aid is a handy reference for the reasons to upgrade and provides you with some of the things to consider when promoting a hardware refresh.
