Any differences (aside from RAM requirements) between SNS-3495 and SNS-3595 OVA

HI Guys

Have a customer with a good sized cluster.  There are wanting to validate whether its better to simply upgrade their existing virtual SNS-3495 (after increasing the amount of RAM from 32G to 64G) or fresh install using the SNS-3595 OVAs.

So short question - is there any difference (aside from RAM requirements) between the SNS-3495 and SNS-3595 OVAs?

Thanks

Peter

OVAs require the equivalent hardware of the appliance as stated in Virtual Machine Requirements.

From the Cisco Secure Network Server Data Sheet :

Table 1.       Product Specifications

So both the speed of the processors and number of cores has increased in addition to the amount of RAM. Disk has increased too but that is variable with a VM.
