Infosphere Guardium support will end September 30, 2014, but customers may purchase a service extension. This document provides details and links to helpful information.
IBM InfoSphere Guardium versions 8.0.0 & 8.0.1 will enter End Of Service (EOS) September 30, 2014.
Customers interested in continued support for these versions after the EOS date may purchase a Service Extension (SE) up to 2 years. The fee-based Service Extension provides technical support (e.g. defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses) for new problems discovered after a product has been withdrawn from support. Fixes are provided at the "then current" corrective service level (Fix Pack, PTF, CSD, etc.). Conditions apply. Customers with current Subscription & Support contracts are eligible for an upgrade prior to the EOS date.
Customers interested in obtaining a Service Extension quote can contact their local sales person/team. We recommend requesting a quote early to avoid unnecessary delays in receiving support. Click this link for more information: https://ibm.biz/BdxPuN
