Version Plus, Upgrades and Support Contract?

Hi,

 

I'm trying to figure out the Version Plus licensing scheme, but I'm getting mixed information from F5 partners.

Say I buy now a -V18 Version Plus P/N, but also assign a support contract to it.

When version 19 is releases, will I be able to upgrade if I have active contract, or do I need to re-buy everything?

 

Thanks

Hi Samir.

Maybe someone with Version Plus can give me an answer.

What I get from my "partner" is that F5 is telling them Version Plus with maintenance can be upgraded for all versions beyond the VXX on the P/N.

 

But I'm not convinced.

doesnt this explain it: https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K15643

 

to me that says perpetual usage but not unlimited upgrade.

What you seem to say is also what I think. That I can't go above VXX without rebuying everything.

But what I get from the reseller is that the F5 guys are saying that I can keep upgrading to the latest versions, even after VXX, if I keep support current.

 

So, what is not clear from the link is what happens with active support.
