Flexera will be making changes to Technopedia Lifecycle Dates for Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions 5, 6, 7 and 8 to correlate the RHEL Full Support and Maintenance Support phase dates to the End of Life and End of Support/Obsolete dates respectively in Technopedia.
To ensure that our customers benefit from all relevant information offered, the EUS (Extended Update Support) and ELS (Extended Life-cycle Support) data will be captured in the Support Level Stage table, separately from the main Technopedia Lifecycle dates. This is because these extended support dates are optional add-ons offered through subscription only, and not all customers may have subscribed to these support terms.
This change will impact customers who rely upon Technopedia Lifecycle dates from RHEL to manage their EOL and EOS/OBS program. The main changes will be to the EOL dates which will follow the Full Support phase dates offered by Red Hat. Obsolete dates for RHEL 5, 6, 7 and 8 will remain the same as currently recorded in Technopedia.
A full list of the RHEL versions in scope for this review are in the attachment
These changes are expected to happen during the first week of February
