The Upcoming End of Extended Support for BizTalk Server 2006

In July, Microsoft ended all support for BizTalk Server 2004. This got us to thinking about the looming end of support for other versions of BizTalk Server: mainstream support for 2006 and 2009 has already ended, and extended support for 2006 (and R2) ends in July 2016:

According to Microsoft, extended support differs quite a bit from mainstream support, including:

  • No non-security hotfixes
  • You will be charged for incident support requests
  • No warranty claims
  • No design or feature change requests
