Understanding the FlexNet Operations Cloud Editions and Deployment Environments

Summary

Revenera proactively communicates scheduled maintenance and important system related notices on the Revenera Status Dashboard. To know if your FlexNet Operations Cloud instance is impacted by an event announced on the status page, you must first understand the difference between the various FlexNet Operations Cloud editions and deployment environments and on which environment your instance is hosted.

This article provides a brief description of the FlexNet Operations Cloud editions to better help you identify what updates are important to you.
