End of Availability of vCenter Application Discovery Manager
VMware is announcing the End of Availability of all VMware vCenter Application Discovery Manager (ADM) versions, effective of 06/01/2013. As a result, all versions of vCenter Application Discovery Manager will be removed from the VMware price list on 06/01/2013. After this date you will no longer be able to purchase these products.
All support and maintenance for the removed versions will be unaffected and will continue as per VMware Life Cycle policy through the published support period, 9/13/2014. Furthermore, VMware will extend the support and maintenance window until 03/08/2017. Therefore, existing customers can continue to use ADM beyond the End of Availability and receive customer support until 03/08/2017.
For any further inquiries, please contact VMware support.
VMware wants to ensure that the customer impact of EOL'ing ADM is minimal. There is no product in VMware's product portfolio with similar capabilities as in ADM and therefore VMware cannot offer a replacement product. However, by extending the support period until 03/08/2017 customers gain additional time to use a supported product and exhaust the value provided from the product.
