Published Feb 15 2022 09:13 PM 6,279 Views

Customers who are on Azure HDInsight 3.6 clusters will continue to get Basic support till September 30, 2022. Extension of Basic Support is provided to allow customers who have not migrated to HDInsight 4.0 sufficient time to do so.  Moving to HDInsight 4.0 will allow you to make use of the latest versions of OSS for your workloads, access to improved autoscaling and performance improvements.  We strongly recommend that you migrate your Azure HDInsight 3.6 clusters to Azure HDInsight 4.0 for all your analytics needs. After September 30th, 2022, customers will not be able to create new HDInsight 3.6 clusters.
