Versioning and Support Lifecycle

GridGain releases new versions on a regular basis following a Major.Minor.Maintenance naming convention.

  • Major Releases - represent major product changes, some of which are not backward-compatible (the jump from 7.6 to 8.7 for example). Rolling Upgrades for Enterprise and Ultimate Editions are not supported for major versions changes and assume a special upgrade procedure for production clusters.

  • Minor Releases (a.k.a. Feature Releases) - introduce new features and significant improvements (for instance, 8.4, 8.5, 8.7 and 8.8). Rolling Upgrades are supported for all minor releases unless there are any breaking changes.

  • Maintenance Releases - deliver bug fixes, security patches, and performance optimizations. For instance, 8.7.3, 8.7.4, and 8.7.5 are maintenance versions. Rolling Upgrades are supported similarly to minor releases as described above.

Support Lifecycle

Description Guarantees

Standard Support

Full support for GridGain minor versions lasts for 2 years. All maintenance releases are supported while the minor version is under full support.

Extended Support

Provided for 12 months after the Standard Support ends. New releases and patches are no longer available. Workloads running on these versions receive no bug fixes, patches, or maintenance releases. Rolling upgrade to a new version is not guaranteed. Customers with active support subscription can contact GridGain for professional support.

After the Standard Support and Extended Support end, GridGain will provide best-effort support. However, we won’t be able to provide bugfixes or security updates. Please contact GridGain Sales to learn more.
