What is Veeam?
Veeam is a software publisher that has multiple products for backup, recovery, and data management. It is best known for its backup functionality providing a critical last resort in cases of data loss or cybersecurity incidents and ransomware. With its toolset, Veeam provides data protection for virtual, physical, and multi-cloud infrastructures.
Veeam's lifecycle has 3 stages. In the initial stage, the product is fully supported and will be updated if issues or vulnerabilities are detected.
The second stage is "End of Fix" in which no further updates, patches, or hotfixes will be released. Exceptions are possible and made on a case-by-case basis. Veeam also mentions: "If Veeam determines that an issue you are facing is fixed in a generally available version, you will be required to update to it."
Lastly, "End of Support" means that the product is no longer supported at all. To receive support, you will need to have an active maintenance contract and perform an upgrade to a newer version.
