The Server Backup Manager (SBM) and Data Center Console (DCC) 5.12 release is the final feature release supporting these products on Windows operating systems. Development efforts moving forward will focus on the SBM running on Linux operating systems. Critical updates will be provided for SBM on Windows through 2016, but there will not be any further software releases of the SBM supporting Windows after October 1, 2016.
