Available for select products for an additional fee, Extended Support Plus provides critical support for a product release after the Committed Support period has ended. Extended Support Plus is intended to be an interim solution for customers who are moving to the most current version of a product, but need additional time to make the transition. It allows you additional time to plan, test and deploy new product versions, with the goal of migrating to the latest version within a timeframe that best fits the needs of your business.
With Extended Support Plus, you will be able to maintain your current product version as long as possible, preserving both the stability and security of your data center, as you transition from one version to the next.
Extended Support Plus provides:
- Continued receipt of hotfixes and security updates for critical severity product defects (and for some products, high severity product defects) beyond the published Committed Support period, to ensure security compliancy and prevent unresolvable system outages.
Extended Support Plus does not include any software enhancement requests or hardware enablement.
Requirements and Availability:
- Available for select products after the end of Committed Support
- Sold for a minimum of 12 months
- Customer must maintain an active support agreement for all versions of the product or solution
- Non-refundable, even if migration from the product version under Extended Support Plus to the new replacement product version is completed prior to the end of the Extended Support Plus term
- Customer may be required to install the latest available patch, hotfix or security update to receive additional defect support or to operationalize critical security updates
- Some products may require that you maintain a certain level of current environment stability prior to purchasing Extended Support Plus, and/or that you maintain a static hardware and software environment during the term of Extended Support Plus
