Goal

This document provides support strategy information for replacing Private Cloud Appliance (PCA) ZFS Appliance Logzilla with Higher Capacity SSD.

Due to very limited availability of some older model Logzilla SSDs, a Logzilla with a Higher Capacity (200GB) may be provided to replace a lower capacity device.
The higher capacity Logzilla requires a minimum AK Firmware version of 2011.1.9.3 or 2013.1.4.1 for the ZFS Storage Appliance.

Updating your PCA software to the recommended release will help to expedite part replacements.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you are unable to upgrade to the recommended release, the replacement parts request (for a lower capacity device) will go on backorder with no known time of fulfillment.
