We previously announced the intent to move VPLEX Virtual Edition to End-of-Life (EOL). Today we are announcing the end of life effective February 8th 2016. All current VPLEX/VE customers will enjoy continued support for 3 years from the EOL date i.e., February 8th 2019.
EMC’s approach to managing product life cycle is based on serving our customers in the most effective way possible. It is with this commitment in mind that EMC has taking this step to end development on VPLEX Virtual Edition. While VPLEX/VE is an innovative and unique product, EMC decided to better invest our resources in enhancing VPLEX core platform to better meet the demands of our growing market share. As part of the EOL efforts, VPLEX has removed the web content related to VPLEX Virtual Edition and the VPLEX Virtual Edition Trial. Customers will continue to have access to VPLEX/VE related documentation and downloads at support.emc.com. The VPLEX family would like to thank all of you for your interest, and we look forward to improvements to the VPLEX core platform in the future.
