Conversion of OpenAFS Support to AuriStor File System Product License

The AuriStor File System is a commercial replacement for OpenAFS that provides enhanced security, performance, scalability and functionality. It is backward compatible with OpenAFS and can be deployed without flag days. The unused portion of an OpenAFS Support Contract can be applied to the purchase price of an AuriStor File System product license on a pro-rated basis. The percentage used will be the larger percentage of tickets used or days gone by.
