    Customer request Lifesize to implement SMB 3.0 support for UVC Video Center NAS Integration. Thy request to expedite this request as their storage platform is moving to SMB 3.0 due to many security and performance enhancements.

     

    There’re major security enhancements in version 3.0, including end-to-end encryption, and in 3.02 you can optionally disable the earlier SMB version 1 to increase security. In version 3.0 there are significant performance enhancements, including Scale Out, SMB Direct and SMB Multichannel, and additional updates in version 3.02 as well. Features to help with SMB management and administrative functions were also added in both SMB versions, including PowerShell support, more detailed performance stats, transparent failover, and support for live VM migrations.
