Can you clear up the news about the new flow storage database in NTA v4.0?
Only the 64 bit NTA uses the new database? The 32 bit NTA still uses MS SQL? Will future versions stop using MS SQL for flow storage? Some release notes say that MS SQL 2014 support is being worked on. Is this for flow storage?
Correct. Only 64 bit installs can use the Flow Storage DB. This DB is purely for the flow records. There will still be some info like the application mapping, IP groups that will be stored in the MS SQL database,i.e., 64 bit NTA installs will use both FSDB and MS SQL with the majority of the data being in the FSDB.
NTA v4.1 already marked the end of support for 32 bit installs
