PeerGFS v4.6.0 is now available

The Peer Software team is pleased to announce the general availability of PeerGFS v4.6.0. This is a Major Release that is immediately available for purchase, trial download, and as an upgrade for Peer customers subscribed to PeerLink and PeerGFS Software Maintenance and Support.

PeerGFS v4.6.0 features next generation capabilities including a new API and Scheduled Replication, as well as updates to Java and integrated third-party libraries.
