OS Software Support

For the Operating Systems Software, for the five years following the end-of-sale date, Kemp will provide bug fixes, maintenance releases, workarounds, or patches for critical bugs reported. Note: it may be necessary to use software upgrade release to correct a reported problem.

Hardware Support

Spares, refurbished replacement units or replacement parts for hardware will be available for a period of 5 years from the end-of-sale date. Kemp will provide spares and replacement units in accordance with our Return Materials Authorization (RMA) process. In some cases the RMA unit shipped will be a previous equivalent model, and not be the current equivalent model as listed below.

Each new generation of hardware is slightly different from the previous generation. This table shows typical equivalent models based on common use cases. Please contact the Kemp Sales teams to discuss your specific requirements before making a purchase to help size your applications needs today.
