Common Questions about Extended Lifecycle Support (ELS)

What is the Virtuozzo ELS program?

The Virtuozzo ELS program provides security updates and support for Virtuozzo products that have reached their End-of-Life (EOL) dates. Customers that are subscribed to the program receive critical security updates, technical support, and critical hot fixes after the EOL dates.

Which versions of Virtuozzo software are subject to the ELS program?

ELS for Virtuozzo 6 is available NOW with special, early promotional pricing for a limited time. ELS for Virtuozzo 6 will be offered until November 2021. ELS for Virtuozzo Containers for Linux 4.7 and Server Bare Metal (PSBM) 5.0 is available until September 2020.

What is the Virtuozzo Product Lifecycle Policy?

Our product lifecycle policy is available at here.

What exactly does the ELS program provide?

The program enables customers to receive technical support, as well as critical bug fixes and critical security fixes, for Virtuozzo products that have reached their EOL date. Customers that are not subscribed to this program no longer receive the technical support, critical bug fixes and critical security fixes that the program provides.

Can I run Virtuozzo 6 Virtuozzo without subscribing to the ELS program?

Yes, you can run Virtuozzo 6 and other EOL products without the ELS license after their EOL dates, but you will not receive the critical updates and technical support that the ELS program provides.

What is the risk to me and to my customers if I don’t subscribe to the ELS program?

Without ELS, you will no longer receive the critical security updates, technical support, and critical hot fixes to pass on to your customers in your service offerings built on Virtuozzo 6. As a result, your service offerings will be vulnerable to security issues that Virtuozzo will not support or resolve.

Can I purchase ELS for Virtuozzo 6 for only a limited number of my licenses?

Yes, you can choose the number of Virtuozzo 6 licenses for which you want ELS. You do not need to purchase ELS for all of your Virtuozzo 6 licenses.

Can I acquire ELS for servers licensed under perpetual license?

Yes, ELS is available for both lease and perpetual licenses.

How do I migrate from Virtuozzo 6 to Virtuozzo Hybrid Server or Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure?
