  • Support for new operating system versions is typically added up to one quarter following the GA release date.
  • New releases aim to support the three last major versions of each supported OS type. 
    • This depends on the OS not reaching its end-of-life within the three months following the release of the Infinidat software.
  • Core edition and HyperV are supported for all Windows Servers.
