In preset times modern software companies have a strong emphasis on releasing software and new features faster and faster to attend the demand and desires of its customers.


VMware is no exception, take into consideration VMware Aria Automation (formely vRealize Automation) as an example, you might expect monthly updates to its SaaS version bringing all kinds of new features, bug fixes, and more, all those beauties are then packaged together and released quarterly as a new product version for its on-prem flavor.

With such a faster release cycle, is not a surprise some companies have been a little bit behind the schedule, mostly due to other activities that sometimes take precedence.


But it's definitely an activity that cannot be neglected for much longer.

VMware's Lifecycle Policy states: 

VMware will support the current release of software as per the Support and Subscription Terms and Conditions for 2 years from the general availability of the Major Release, or the latest released version for 12 months following the general availability of the next Major Release, whichever is longer.

If you need to get proper support from VMware, it's imperative to stay on a supported version. 

All of that is to say that during the first quarter of 2023, 3 versions of VMware Aria Automation will be end-of-support.

















Watch closely the Product Lifecycle Matrix: filter for your desired product/version and pay attention to it's supported period.

Upgrading VMware Aria (vRealize suite) products has never been more straightforward, Lifecycle Manager automates all of that for you.

But if you really want to get ridden of this Burden migrate to the SaaS offering, then it will be our concern ; )
