Velocity Software's Statement of Support

All product upgrades are ALWAYS provided at NO EXTRA COST. As you migrate to new releases of z/VM, you can be assured of our software upgrades being available at no additional cost. One annual payment includes the cost of upgrades, documentation, product support and help with your performance.

All products are supported on every release of z/VM. Because all products use standard interfaces, you always have the option of migrating to a current release of Velocity Software products prior to upgrading your z/VM environment, or waiting until after your z/VM migration to avoid changing too many components at the same time.

Because all products use standard interfaces, new releases of z/VM have historically been supported prior to General Availability of these releases. It is always Velocity Software's intent to maintain support of installations on the leading edge of technology. All announced levels of z/VM are currently supported, including z/VM Version 6.4 and beyond.

Support of new levels of z/VM may include new reports to exploit new capability. Velocity Software products provided full 64-bit support, Escon/FICON channel support, TCPIP networks and Linux SNMP support. Velocity Software has earned the title "leading performance software vendor" in many ways.
