Lifecycle and Maintenance Dates

IMPORTANT Consider the following points for pre-5.5 ERE versions:
  • HPE cannot guarantee the support for any pre-5.5 version of HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise beyond the End-of-maintenance dates–listed in the following table. Kubernetes container images used in pre-5.5 ERE versions are no longer available from public repositories, and security vulnerabilities in those images cannot be addressed.
  • HPE recommends upgrading to the latest General availability (GA) version of HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise from any pre-5.5.0 HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise versions. Contact the HPE Support team for any questions related to HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise and Kubernetes support.
IMPORTANT Before upgrading to HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise 5.6.x, HPE Ezmeral Product and Engineering team recommends upgrading all pre-5.5.1 deployments to HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise 5.5.1, and to perform EzKube migration for the pre-5.5.1 Kubernetes clusters.
