We can provide these components as well. Please ask for price and availability.
Server's RAM can also be upgraded from 128GB to 192GB (it supports up to 768GB)
Please contact us if you would like to add any of these upgrades.
Virtual Device Licenses:
Most Virtual Appliances come with a Trial/Demo License.
In most cases this Demo License can be reset by re-installing the Virtual Appliances.
The original installation Software is provided for that purpose.
A few Appliances and the ESXi Server itself do have a Permanent License though!
This is a summary of the Licenses for each Virtual Appliance:
- ISEv: 90-Day Trial License (it must be re-installed after 90 days)
- WLCv: 90-Day Trial License (it must be re-installed after 90 days)
- FTDv: 90-Day Trial License (it must be re-installed after 90 days)
- FMCv: 90-Day Trial License (it must be re-installed after 90 days)
- WSAv: 30-Day Trial License (it needs a new License after Trial Period)
- ESAv: 30-Day Trial License (it needs a new License after Trial Period)
- ACSv: Permanent License! - ESXi Server: Permanent Enterprise Version License! - Test Stations (Windows 2008 Server): Permanent License! - NGIPSv: No License! (Please see note about this Appliance below)
- ASAv: Lab Edition Mode (No License), but still fully functional. Data Rate limited to 100Kbps
- CSR1000v: Lab Edition Mode (No License) but still fully functional. Data Rate limited to 2.5Mbps
Note about CSR1000v Licenses::
- CSR1000v Routers are configured in fully functional Lab Edition Mode (No License)
- While in Lab Mode they have a full AX License with IPBase + APPX + Security functions
- The Data Rate in Lab Mode is limited to 2.5Mbps, which is enough for a Lab environment.
Note about WSAv & ESAv Licenses::
- Demo Licenses for the WSAv & ESAv Appliances last for only 30 days. - After this 30-day period you'll need a new Demo License, which can be obtained from Cisco.
- You'll need to contact Cisco directly to obtain these Licenses.
Note about NGIPSv Licenses::
- There are no Trail/Demo Licenses available for the NGIPSv Virtual Appliance
- However, for almost all practical purposes, FTDv replaces NGIPSv! - An FTDv Appliance is considered to be an NGIPSv with a ASAv included! - So in a way, FTDv actually provides more functions than NGIPSv
- Therefore, for almost all practical purposes FTDv replaces NGIPSv!
