Been a ServerIron admin for quite a while, my first pair were the original SI-800's. My GT-E's are very long in the tooth and time to think about replacing them. I am feeling a bit bewildered trying to figure out what is currently being offered. Before I jump in with a sales team can someone answer any of the following:
Is a hardware appliance still being offered anymore?
Is the vADX still a viable/purchasable product?
Is the vTM a direct replacement for the ADX/vADX line or is it a completely new product?
I'd love to stick with a product with SI Lineage, but it is starting to look like things have drastically changed in terms of product offering.
