Extended Plus

Stability and innovation are important to your business. You can't afford disruption that prevents you from meeting your business objectives. Access to patches and technical support are critical. Don't wait until the Mainstream support period ends before you take steps to ensure you have access to the latest fixes for your system–take the proactive approach.

With Extended Plus from Micro Focus, for an additional fee to maintenance, you can align your support needs with your deployment plans. Available for select products, Extended Plus gives you an extended period of support for a major release beyond the Mainstream Support period. This lets you plan ahead for your upgrade path at your own pace, rather than react to the end of support before your operations are ready.

Your solution should only be updated when necessary, and on a schedule that works for your data center. With Extended Plus, Micro Focus will continue to deliver security patches for critical vulnerabilities, and software updates for critical non-security issues. It allows you to maintain your current product version as long as possible, preserving both the stability and security of your data center, as you transition from one version to the next.
