Hybrid Workloads EOS policy

 

End-of-life policy for Hybrid Workload clients 

The following policies are applicable to the Hybrid Workload clients:

  • End-of-support (EOS): Druva ends all support for the Hybrid Workload client versions that are more than 18 months old and no patches are made available. Auto-upgrades will continue to work. Druva starts sending periodic reminders to its customers to ensure that they upgrade Hybrid Workload clients to the latest version.
  • End-of-life (EOL): EOL for a Hybrid Workload client version means an end to all technical assistance, auto-upgrades, and bug fixes for that version. Hybrid Workload client versions that are more than 24 months old may stop connecting to the cloud and all backups and restores may be blocked. During a Hybrid Workload release, Druva publishes the tentative EOL date for the Hybrid Workload client. Six months prior to the planned EOL date, Druva starts sending periodic reminders to its customers to ensure that they have sufficient time to upgrade.

End-of-life policy for CloudCache 

Each release of Cloud Cache provides new features and enhancements. Druva also releases patches and hotfixes for CloudCache as and when required. As per Druva’s EOL policy, Druva supports the last two versions of CloudCache. EOL for a CloudCache version means an end to all technical assistance, auto-upgrades, and bug fixes for that version. Druva recommends that you periodically upgrade CloudCache to the latest version.

Supported Hybrid Workload client versions

Druva recommends its customers to periodically upgrade the Hybrid Workload clients installed on the servers to the latest version. 

Note: Druva will end the support for the Hybrid Workload clients after 18 months of their release.

The following table lists the Hybrid Workload client versions that Druva supports with Druva Cloud.

Druva will deprecate the current 24-month EOL policy for Hybrid Workload clients on April 03, 2023.

End-of-support policy for Hybrid Workload clients 

Druva ends all support for the Hybrid Workload client versions that are more than twelve months old from their release date and no patches will be made available. End-of-support ( EOS) for a Hybrid Workload client version means an end to all technical assistance and bug fixes for that version. However, auto-upgrades may work. 

During a Hybrid Workload release, Druva publishes the tentative EOS dates for the released Hybrid Workload clients.

End-of-support policy for CloudCache 

Each release of CloudCache provides new features and enhancements. Druva also releases patches and hotfixes for CloudCache as required. As per Druva’s EOS policy, Druva supports the last two versions of CloudCache. EOS for a CloudCache version means an end to all technical assistance, auto-upgrades, and bug fixes for that version. Druva recommends that you periodically upgrade CloudCache to the latest version.

End-of-support life policy for third-party vendor 

After the software vendor ends the life for a specific operating system, Druva shall continue to back up and restore resources on an operating system for 12 months after its end-of-support life (EOSL) to facilitate migration to the latest operating system and vendor product versions including Hypervisors, NAS, and Databases. After 12 months, Druva shall immediately end all its technical assistance, auto-upgrades, and bug fixes for the agents running on that operating system. You should review the vendor release notes for the  EOS/EOL timelines of the operating system(s) deployed in your organization from time to time to avoid any disruptions to your backup and restore activities. Review the list of supported platforms in the Support matrix article.
