Users of the commercial UCS Enterprise Subscriptions receive up to seven years of maintenance and support for each major UCS version. This guarantees lasting, stable operations and allows users to update on the day that fits best their needs. UCS Enterprise Subscriptions are valid for twelve months. After the expiration of this period, the subscription will be automatically extended by another year. If this extension is not wanted, notice of termination must be given at least three months prior to the expiration of the running contract. You might find an overview about prices and benefits of the UCS Enterprise Subscriptions on the page Prices and Subscriptions.
With the conclusion of the contract, the order processing agreement (AVV) of 01.12.2022 also applies automatically, insofar as support services are used and personal data of the client is processed by Univention GmbH. Customers can download the AVV here and add to it at the marked points.
UCS Enterprise Subscriptions include
- Professional support subject to the subscription level
- Rapid provision of security patches as soon as security issues become apparent
- Scheduled integration of new versions of Open Source software that is used in Univention products within the scope of determined release cycles
- Further development of the software components developed by Univention
- Delivery of new product versions
Extended security maintenance
For customers using UCS Base or Standard Subscription as well as older UCS versions which are not any more covered by the regular maintenance service, we offer an extension of the security update service. This allows those customers to have more time for the planning and execution of the necessary updating process.
