In this new release, Brocade Services Director supports configurations where Services Director is running behind NAT. In addition, this release has been designated as an LTS (Long Term Support) release. Summary:
NAT deployment support: This is suitable for cloud configurations where the front-end IP address differs from the actual IP address, or where Services Director is deployed in a private network, to manage ADC services outside the private network.
Long-Term Support release: For customers who prefer longer support cycles to support their operational model, Brocade is identifying Brocade Services Director 17.2 as an LTS (Long Term Support) release. As a result, support for Brocade Services Director 17.2 will be available for three years after the release date.
Version Numbering: Since January 2017, Brocade software products use the version number convention “YY.n”, where YY is the year of release and n is the sequential release for that year. This release of Services Director is designated "17.2" - following directly from the previous Services Director release, which was designated "17.1"
