SLES SPs are supported for 6 months after the release of the next support pack and since SLES 11 SP4 was released in July’15, SLES 11 SP3 is set to go out of support end of Jan’16.
SLES 11 SP3 is the base platform for OES 11 SP2 and OES 2015. You, as an OES customer running OES 11 SP2 or OES 2015 – should you be worried?
Post Jan’16, SLES11 SP3 patches – deemed necessary for running OES services securely and stably will be made available via the respective OES11 SP2 and OES 2015 update channels.
So, OES customers – rest assured – We take security and stability of OES servers seriously and we know they are a priority for our customers and hence are a priority for us too. We will be taking care of this pro-actively without you having to be worried on this count.
Mid 2016, we expect to release OES 11 SP3 and OES 2015 SP1, both based on SLES 11 SP4.
