Technote (FAQ)


Question

Which IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) Family products and releases have support extension contracts available for purchase beyond their End of Support (EOS) date?

Answer

Below is a table of recent TSM Family products and releases that have announced End of Support (EOS) dates. The table includes details on:

  • whether a product and release is eligible for a support extension contract, and if so, the last date for the extended support
  • which active releases or products are the upgrade or suggested replacement path

All older products are not eligible for support extensions and are not included in the table.

Contact your IBM Account team to apply for a support extension on an eligible product.
