Phases of the Support Lifecycle for Business Products

Type of Support
Product documentation, Knowledge Base articles, and forum help available on the Acronis website
Full support by Acronis Support, including root cause investigation by developers for all severity issues *
Product hotfixes/patches for critical issues, critical security issues, and OS support updates
Product hotfixes/patches for selected issues of any severity level **
Cumulative updates, including new functionality

* A solution or workaround is provided at Acronis' discretion. If the issue is resolved in the newer version, an upgrade is considered a valid solution.

** The bugfix will be added to the Product Roadmap. A fix is not guaranteed for all software defects. Triage and fix are at Acronis' discretion.

Important Considerations:

Acronis provides full support for the three latest minor versions of the product. Customers are encouraged to update to the latest available build to ensure they have the most stable and secure version of the product.

Customers wishing to receive more support offerings during a product's extended support phase — e.g. Acronis Support and developer investigation of product hotfixes/patches for selected issues of any severity level — should contact their dedicated account manager or regional sales representative to determine the most appropriate support program for their organization’s needs.

During the trial period, support is only provided for the current version of the product.

Acronis will update policy statements on the Acronis website to reflect any changes upon their effective date.
