End of Support and End of Life Schedule

Table of Contents

Overview

RightScale will notify customers when features, assets or clouds are nearing End of Support or End of Life stages. Listed below is the schedule of the lifecycle of these items. It will be updated when dates are determined and in accordance with longstanding RightScale EOL policy.

Definitions

End of Support (EOS)

End of Support (EOS) stage marks the official withdrawal of technical support for specific versions of clouds or RightScale product features. RightScale support will provide best-effort support up to the time the feature is removed from the product (End of Life). No new enhancements / non-critical bug fixes will be added after EOS date.

End of Life (EOL)

End of Life (EOL) stage marks when the feature or support for specific version is removed at the discretion of engineering. Customers will lose access to the discontinued feature on a specified date.

Schedule

The following timetable shows various clouds/product features currently supported by RightScale and EOL timelines. Contact RightScale support (support@rightscale.com) if you have questions or concerns.

LTS Lifecycle Policy

An LTS release is a set of ServerTemplates and other assets such as RightScripts and recipes that are released together and will not undergo additional feature development. Updates to LTS assets will consist only of non-breaking bug fixes or other non-breaking changes. Non-breaking means that you will be able to update the assets to the latest version and your application will remain functional without any changes to input values. LTS releases are supported for 18 months after the initial release.

Versioning Example for a ServerTemplate

Note: In the example above, note that 12.11 and 12.11.0-LTS are functionally equivalent. 12.11.0-LTS is a clone of 12.11, but is on the LTS lineage. Also, 13.5.0-LTS is a clone of 13.5.
