In related news, version 7.2 of the Facilis system software and FastTracker 3.0 is now available and included in all HUB systems.

New for version 7.2, Facilis Object Cloud virtualizes Cloud and LTO storage and into a cache volume on the server, available on the client desktops through the Facilis Shared File System.
