EVO OS Version 5.7 Released

Recommended Posts

EVO Version 5.7 includes many new features and improvements to scalability, performance, setup, and reliability. Some of the most notable additions are summarized below.

If you purchased an EVO storage system that is currently at OS v.5.x your hardware is compatible with EVO v.5.7. Please contact us to determine if you are eligible for a free upgrade to this latest version of the EVO OS.

Before upgrading the OS version on your EVO, it is imperative that you review the user manual and plan for any changed functionality. Further, although an update to the newer version can be done with data in-place, a backup of all critical data should be completed and verified before beginning the update. You should also plan for a reboot, which will be required immediately after the upgrade process has finished.

In addition to these highlighted items, there are many other improvements and options, which are documented in the relevant sections of the EVO GUI's Help manual.
