What is/are: New in Northern Storage Suite 9.0 SR4 (Release Notes)


  • Stability, performance and feedback to operator
    NSS 9.0 SR4 is a pure service release, providing a bulk delivery of adjustments and improvements to offer a more resilient and robust version of the current feature set. SR4 is a recommended upgrade for all NSS customers.
  • Backwards compatibility
    Backwards compatibility was not delivered as expected in previously released 9.0 versions (SR2 and SR3). In resolving these difficulties a required change was made that will isolate these previous 9.0 releases - installations of 9.0 SR2 and SR3 will be unable to communicate with other NSS versions. With this in mind, it is recommended that upgrades be performed for all NSS installations at the same time as opposed to a staged upgrade plan. Please contact support@northern.net with any questions.
