Can a customer upgrade from v5.5 to 2022, or does it require a lift and shift?

Any customer can (and shall) upgrade to 2022.

Hi @massimodecolle,

 We're still on track for end of May release. We'll provide a more definitive date as we get closer.

Thanks,

Quick questions for @Resnofendri :  Is the go Live date for this version still May 2022 (i.e.:  available at the end of this month)?   

Is there end of life defined for version 5.5?  If yes, what is the date?

@kathy_lagorio - I would have to defer to @Resnofendri for updates in relation to the Data Platform 2022 release.

However in relation to version 5.5, end of life information about this can be found on the following page: Data Platform End-of-Life Policy and Notices. At this point in time, no end of life date has been identified for the 5.5 release.

@kathy_lagorio, as we discussed during our roadmap session, there has been no immediate EOL date defined for 5.5 version yet.

@ajinkyaestee, the new installer can now be downloaded from the Product and License Center on the portal. Thank you for your patience! 

Edited (2022-0616): the new Migration Wizard can now also be downloaded from the PLC. Tagging @kathy_lagorio here as well.

Will existing 5.5 installations get the new upgrade through an update set?  Or do we need to run the new installer?
