  • NetBackup Future Platform and Feature Plans

    To better help customers plan for upcoming changes to the support status of older product functionality, features, hardware, OS, and 3rd party software products in NetBackup, Symantec will provide advanced notification as listed below. Symantec intends to list items that will no longer be supported in the next release of NetBackup. If possible, these items are listed at least six months before that release.

    The information below lists certain features, functionality, 3rd-party and Symantec products, applications, databases, and OS/Platforms. Symantec intends to replace them with newer and improved functionality, or in some cases, discontinue without replacement. The last release of NetBackup to proliferate support of the item is provided. Technotes listed in the Notes column contain additional details about available replacement options. Where a major or minor release version is specified, the version is supported through the last Maintenance Update (patch) of that release. Where 'All' is specified, there is support for all versions or variations of the family of the relevant or supported platforms.

    Check this site frequently for updated information for NetBackup. If an item listed below will cause significant business impact, contact your Symantec Sales Account Team. Please note that the official NetBackup Support Lifecycle for your existing NetBackup product version will not be affected or altered in any way. For the official Symantec Support Lifecycle Policy of all NetBackup versions, see http://www.symantec.com/support/support_fundamentals.jsp.
