    BES 5

    Advertisement



    Hello all,

    I'm on BES v4.0 with 80 users using various devices (8700, 8800, 8300, 8310, 8900).

    I've quite a few nice features on v5 like file server access but that only works on 8800 and 8900 OS5.

    Can anyone advise on what I might miss out on by not upgrading to BES5? If I stay on v4.0 will I find certain facilities and features just won't work properly?

    Any advise or thoughts welcome.

    Thanks.

    Hope you get on well with this.

    Let us know how you get on with v5 further down the road.

    Really interested in hearing thoughts on functionalitiy and the pros n cons, especially for me as I'm still on v4.0.

    I'd really like to know if I'll loose any functionality if i don't upgrade.

    Thanks.

    The best thing about 5.0 is the build in hot standby system functionality. I am spinng up 5.0 and with our current growth rate, 5.0 allows us to keep going with the right design and not miss a step even during OS patching. It does help to have a goos support contract to help with it as there are a few things I would recommend depnding on your needs and uptime needed.

    If you are utilizing the standby function that is built in, I would also recommend splitting out the BAS and MDS services on seperate systems.

    BES 5.0 is SWEET!!!!!
