vSZ-D/SZ100-D Zone Affinity

vSZ-D/SZ100-D Zone Affinity is a new feature introduced in this release. It is now possible to dedicate vSZ-D/SZ100-D instance on a per distributed site basis.

This is especially useful for managed service providers and ISPs who manage remote distributed sites through a central or regional data center. In this architecture, the vSZ is in the provider’s data center managing APs across all remote distributed sites.

On sites where there is a need for tunneling, they can introduce the vSZ-D/SZ100-D and bind them to that particular site so that all APs on that site shall tunnel traffic locally to the vSZ-D/SZ100-D on that site.
