Complement your in-place subscription
Available as an Add-On option, Extended Lifecycle Support complements your in-place Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription and extends the overall supported lifecycle from 7 years up to a total of 10 years. This offering requires that you have an existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription with equivalent subscription terms and support level.
Extended Lifecycle Support is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux major release 3 and 4 today. The end of life for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is scheduled for February 29, 2012, so this is a good time to take advantage of this Red Hat offering.
The fine print
The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extended Lifecycle Support program only covers specific Red Hat Enterprise Linux software components. See the nonsupported software components for each major release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux supported by Extended Lifecycle Support. These packages and their subpackages are excluded from Extended Lifecycle Support coverage, which means that Red Hat will not update them or fix customer-reported defects. Red Hat reserves the right to exclude additional packages for security reasons.
