Change log for CB Response 7.1 Operating Environment Requirements Guide (changes since the 6.2 version)

This edition of the CB Response Operating Environment Requirements (OER) Guide is a major overhaul from the previous release. We recommend that you read it in its entirety for up-to-date requirements and recommendations.

> CB Response can support up to 18,750 sensors and/or up to 10.5 TB of process event data per server.

Can we attach more than 10.5TB disk space on a server for cold partitions? In other words, can we store more than 10.5TB events as cold partitions, as long as hot and warm partitions are under the 10.5TB limit? 

@tfunaki yes, you are correct- the OER only spec's out warm/hot storage. You can attach additional storage for Cold cores

Change log for CB Response 7.1 Operating Environment Requirements Guide - update from original April 2020 release.
