Documentation

Debuting with SGOS 6.2 is the new Acceleration WebGuide. This WebGuide, posted on BTO, is the one-stop resource for acceleration documentation. It contains conceptual information related to WAN optimization, explains how to deploy ProxySG appliances in an application delivery network, and provides solutions on how to use the proxies to achieve different goals: accelerating applications, improving the quality of streaming media, reducing bandwidth usage, and optimizing users’ Web experience.

Known Issues

The SG210-5 is not supported on SGOS 6.2 or higher because this release provides new features and capabilities that require more system resources than available on the SG210-5. (The 210-10 and 210-25 are supported on SGOS 6.2.) The SG210-5 continues to be supported on the SGOS 6.1.x releases. Please contact your sales teams for upgrade options.
