New deployment 4.0 vs 4.1

We will be implementing a new deployment of WAAS at 5 sites to start in the next month. Does anybody have any recommendations whether to use 4.0.x or 4.1.x to start? Can anybody speak to 4.1's stability comparied to 4.0?

Thanks,

Patrick

Re: New deployment 4.0 vs 4.1

Patrick,

4.0.19 is running on a ton of networks and I consider it very stable. 4.1.1a has a TON of new features, but it's a little newer. I would weigh the new features against the slightly higher risk of newer code. Do you want additional features like additional application acceleration for HTTP, NFS, WMS Live Stream splitting, Centralized Print, Transparent CIFS (huge difference).

If your going with a new deployment, I'd probably recommend using 4.1.x, however you will probably perform at least one software upgrade in the next few months as the code stabilizes.

Hope that helps,

Dan

I think the transparent CIFS will make it worth it to go with 4.1.x. Thanks for the info.

Thanks,

Patrick
