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 Workload Security. Do not create more relays unless required. For details, see Define relays to distribute updates.
