Version 4.6.2 improves support for asynchronous replication of data and metadata, particularly when performing simultaneous modification of files on multiple geographically separated sites.  

  • GUI Performance

Several enhancements have been made to substantially improve the GUI response times for large-scale Hammerspace deployments.

This category consists of product features made available for testing purposes only. Technology preview features are not supported for production use. In general, a preview feature will be made available with full product support in the following release. 

  • Antivirus Scanning

Antivirus is now supported as a technology preview feature. Antivirus support is implemented through standard ICAP (Internet Content Adaptation Protocol). ICAP is a protocol defined in RFC 3507.
