In April the new XG 86 and XG 106 models were introduced and at the same time the XG 85 and XG 105 were discontinued for the middle of the year. Meanwhile, it is known that Sophos did this because the future SFOS v18 firmware will require at least 4GB of RAM.
1Core 2GB RAM to 1Core 4GB RAM Upgrade
So far we only talked about the hardware, but it was almost forgotten that there is also a variant for 1Core and 2GB RAM for the virtual/software licenses. Sophos plans to automatically upgrade all existing 1Core 2GB RAM to 1Core 4GB RAM. So if you have such a license, you will benefit from a free update. 👏
The automatic upgrade is expected to be completed by the end of July 2019 and will not disrupt operations for customers currently using the 1C2 license.
