RtBrick periodically introduces software support for new hardware platforms and use cases. Likewise, support for older software is discontinued to ensure that RtBrick can provide appropriate attention to software critical to drive business functions. RtBrick software that corresponds to a hardware platform will be 'EoL’ed' when a hardware platform EoL is announced. If Rtbrick decides to support a newer hardware platform which replaces an existing platform in terms of features and support for existing use cases, RtBrick may decide to EoL the corresponding software irrespective of the hardware platform EoL. In the latter case, RtBrick Customer Support can help customers to transition to the newer platforms. RtBrick specifies an End-of-Life policy to ensure customers have sufficient visibility and advance notice to plan transitions out of such platforms for which EoL is announced.
The following milestone definitions apply to all EOL policies:
The diagram below depicts the process followed to announce the End-of-Life.
The release numbers, descriptions, and dates for these affected platforms are shown below.
