Phases Description
*GA to EOM Upon the General Availability date, products are supported and maintained until the End of Maintenance date.
  • Applying configuration changes
  • Upgrade recommendation to an existing newer version of product
  • Code-level maintenance in the form of Software updates; typically, results in a maintenance release, which is a newer version of product that was not existing at the time the issue was encountered
**EOM to EOL After a product release reaches its End of Maintenance date, no further code-level maintenance will be provided, except for critical security- related fixes on a per-request basis.

  • General troubleshooting of a specific issue to isolate potential causes
  • Upgrade recommendation to an existing newer version of product
  • Issue resolution limited to applying configuration changes and/or an upgrade recommendation to an existing newer version of product
