OpenShift Enterprise Life Cycle
Red Hat offers services for each major release of OpenShift Enterprise with designated life cycle phases.The life cycle for a major release of Red Hat Openshift Enterprise is divided into two primary phases: the Full Support Phase and the Maintenance Support Phase.
OpenShift Enterprise is Red Hat's supported Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product that is designed to be installed on-premise within customer data-centers or private, public, or hybrid clouds. OpenShift Online is Red Hat's public PaaS designed for organizations seeking a hosted cloud solution. This life cycle applies only to OpenShift Enterprise.
Phase 1: Full Support Phase
Start Date: General Availiability
During the Full Support Phase, qualified Critical and Important Security Advisories (RHSAs) and Urgent and selected High Priority Bug Fix Advisories (RHBAs) may be released as they become available. Other errata advisories, such as Red Hat Enhancement Advisories (RHEAs), may be delivered as appropriate.
For any minor release made available during this phase, the available and qualified errata advisories (RHSAs, RHBAs, and RHEAs) will be cumulatively included with the contents of previously released product updates.
Phase 2: Full Maintenance Support Phase
Start Date: no less than two (2) years after General Availability.
During the Maintenance Support Phase, Critical impact Security Advisories (RHSAs) and selected Urgent Priority Bug Fix Advisories (RHBAs) may be released as they become available. Other errata advisories may be delivered as appropriate.
If supporting software (for example the underlying Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system) has ended its product life cycle before the end of the Phase 1: Full Support Phase, customers may be required to upgrade to the most recent version of OpenShift Enterprise running on an updated version of the supporting software.
