SORT InfoScale/SFHA Future Platform and Feature Plans | Veritas

Veritas is committed to providing the best possible data protection experience for Storage Foundation/Veritas InfoScale and NetBackup (the "Products") customers on the widest variety of platforms, operating systems, databases, applications, and hardware. Veritas is continuously reviewing the Products' support of these items to ensure the proper balance of supporting their General Availability release, the very latest versions of new software, hardware and introducing new features and functionality and maintaining support for existing and older versions of these products and the Products' functionality. While Veritas is continually adding support for new features, platforms, operating systems, and applications, it may be also necessary to improve, replace, or remove support in the Products for lesser used, older features, functionality, software, OS, databases, applications, integration with other products, and hardware that are no longer supported or nearing their end of support life from the manufacturer from Storage Foundation/Veritas InfoScale and NetBackup Compatibility Lists.

To better help its customers to plan for these upcoming changes to the support status of these items in the Products, Veritas will provide advanced notification as soon as possible as listed below. Veritas intends to list the older product functionality, features, hardware, OS, and 3rd party software products that will no longer be supported in the next release of the Products. If possible, these items are listed at least six months before that release.

The information below lists certain features, functionality, 3rd-party and Veritas products, applications, databases, and OS/Platforms for which Veritas intends to replace with newer and improved functionality, or in some cases, discontinue without replacement. The last release of the Products to proliferate support of the item is provided. Technotes in the Notes column contain additional details about available replacement options. Where a major or minor release version is specified, the version is supported through the last Maintenance Update (patch) of that release. Where 'All' is specified, it is supported for all versions or variations of the family of the relevant or supported platforms.

Check this site frequently for updated information for the Products. If an item listed below will cause significant business impacts, contact your Veritas Sales Account Team. Please note that the official Storage Foundation/Veritas InfoScale /NetBackup Support Lifecycle for the existing version of the Products won't be affected or altered in any way. For the official Veritas Support Lifecycle Policy of all versions of the Products, see
