Sizing guidelines for Deep Security deployments vary by the scale of your network, hardware, and software.

Relays require more disk space if you install Deep Security Agent on many different platforms. (Relays store update packages for each platform.) For details, see Get Deep Security Agent software.

Relays are already provided as part of Deep Security as a Service. Do not create more relays unless required. For details, see Deploy Deep Security Relay.
