If you have an older Sentio appliance, you may be wondering if you can upgrade it to run on Eversync 5.x. The answer depends on which Sentio model number and part number you have, and how long ago you purchased the appliance. Eversync is offering an incentive rebate to customers wishing to upgrade.
To determine what your specific upgrade/trade-in options are, contact Eversync Support.
When contacting Eversync Support, please be prepared to provide the serial numbers of your appliances. The serial number can be located near the front of the appliance either on the left side or on the top left.
Customers not wishing to upgrade to Eversync 5.x will continue to receive maintenance releases of the RevOS software for Sentio appliances.
Free Chassis Swap with Replication Unit
When you buy a second backup appliance of 2U or larger to be used for replication, you can get your chassis swap upgrade for free.
If you are running a release prior to Eversync Release 5.x with non-Release 5.x hardware, and are interested in upgrading to Release 5.x to get replication, this is your ideal time.
If you are running legacy (pre-5.0) hardware and buy a second backup appliance* for replication:
- Eversync will give you a free chassis swap of your legacy hardware.
- Eversync will provide you replication deployment service for free.
* Second appliance must be the same RU size or larger than your existing legacy appliance.
