End of Availability (EOA) of vSphere Data Protection Advanced standalone

Starting March 01, 2015, vSphere Data Protection Advanced is consolidated into vSphere Data Protection (available through vSphere Essentials Plus Kit or higher vSphere editions, all vSphere with Operations Management editions and all vCloud Suite editions) and will no longer require the purchase of a separate license.

Existing customers who purchased VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced may continue to use the product beyond the End of Availability date of March 01, 2015. This change in packaging does not affect existing product support or functionality. VMware remains committed to offering virtual machine backup functionality through VMware vSphere Data Protection as a feature of vSphere. The existing capabilities in VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced are now available to customers who purchased vSphere Essentials Plus Kit or higher vSphere editions, vSphere with Operations Management editions, or vCloud Suite editions and are current on their Support and Subscription (SnS).

This has no Impact on existing use of the product. It also has no impact on support already purchased from VMware or the support lifecycle for the product.
For more information on the end of support for this product, see the VMware Lifecycle Product Matrix.
