Support will be adherent to existing software policies and pursuant to the terms and conditions of the support contract. For the purpose of this policy, the following support definitions apply:

  • General troubleshooting of an issue to isolate potential causes
  • Issue resolution through existing hotfixes and/or known workarounds

Maintenance:

  • Resolving an issue through product code modification. (Typically delivered via hotfixes or service packs.)

Life Cycle Phases

Phase Definitions

By understanding the life cycle phases, customers should be better able to plan and prepare for their support needs.

GraphOn products progress through three distinct life cycle phases:

  • Mainstream Maintenance Phase:
    begins on the General Availability date of a product release and transitions to the next phase on the End of Maintenance date
  • Extended Maintenance Phase:
    begins on the End of Maintenance date and transitions to the next phase on the End of Life date
  • End of Life:
    the End of Life date
