Life Cycle and Update Policies

Red Hat provides support and maintenance during the stated time periods for each of the major releases of Red Hat Platform, Storage, and Middleware products. These life cycles allows customers and partners to effectively plan, deploy, and support Red Hat solutions.

The life cycle associated with a Red Hat product identifies the various levels of maintenance for each release of that product over a period from initial release—or general availability (GA)—to the end of maintenance.
