VMware vFabric Enterprise Ready Server (ERS) is a widely distributed Apache HTTP Server package that provides enterprise-level performance, scalability and security while reducing the cost and complexity of sophisticated web infrastructures.
VMware has announced that no further orders for VMware vFabric Enterprise Ready Server (“ERS”) will be accepted beginning July 1, 2013, the End of Availability (“EOA”) date for ERS. VMware has also announced that maintenance services for ERS will cease on July 1, 2014, the End of General Support (“EOGS”) date; and all technical support services for ERS will cease on July 1, 2015, the End of Support Life (“EOSL”) date.
All ERS customers are encouraged to convert or deploy Pivotal Web Server, the product that replaces the ERS bundle. Web Server has been integrated with the latest open source runtimes, security patches and bug fixes, as well as adding new product features that better serve enterprise customers deploying applications across virtualized and cloud environments.
ERS customers with perpetual licenses and active support and subscription agreements (SnS) are entitled to a one-time $0 conversion to Pivotal Web Server and open source Apache Tomcat Support. ERS customers with term licenses are eligible to convert to equivalent Pivotal Web Server term licenses at the same price as ERS for HTTP term license and optionally add Apache Tomcat support or Pivotal tc Server licenses.
