What service packs and updates for the supported platforms does this product support?
On the Technical Info tab for each PlateSpin product, we only list the base versions that we support. Our policy for service packs and other minor updates is as follows:
Platform Support: we support all minor updates and service packs for all the platforms that are listed in our product documentation.
Platform Verification: there is a difference between platform support and verification; platform verification is a guarantee that the specific version of the platform will work with the product out of the box. Verification involves running a series of tests in our lab and ensuring there are no issues with the specific platform and the tested product version. We go through the verification exercise every time we have a major or minor release and if time allows, we do it in-between releases.
Does PlateSpin Protect supports UEFI and GPT based servers?
