Windows 10 Deployment AMA Build Lifetimes and Support Cycles

Occasional Contributor

Some general questions:

 

What is the timeframe for providing w10 enterprise iso's in the donload area of microsoft select portal in comparison to public availabilty of a build (e.g. cbb)?

 

what is the (if possible to tell) the exact date such an iso or build gets out of support (end of lifecycle)?

 

your article in https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4018798 unfortunately is not comprehensive enough :(

so either windows 10 ha a lifecycle of 10 years or - a I understand your WaaS "tactic": a build nnn (e.g. 1703) has a lifecycle of exact 18 month ..

 

please clarify :)

Hi @Rainer Pollmann, as for the last question - Support for each version released is for 18 months. Support for LTSB versions specifically is in a 10 year cycle.

Are there dependencies between release date in volume license portal and eol of n-2 Version?

The support policy is we support every release for at least 18 months. 

With that said, we might support it for longer than 18 months.
