ESRS Gateway configuration (v2.x) EOL

AretTunc

Hi All,

 

Do we have any EOL/EOSL date for ESRS Gateway configuration (v2.x) ?

Some customers resisting to upgrade to VE version. They have concern about security and some high availability futures.

Or if we have detailed any comparison document can help us.

 

Regards

Aret

    The primary reason would be that ESRS 2 is no longer being developed to support the latest products and security enhancements.  It is still supported, though there are many benefits to upgrading to ESRS 3.
