Continuous Current Evolution
Your Warranty Against Obsolescence
SUBNET Continuous Current Evolution (CCE) customers already have the right to upgrade to new operating systems, install the latest versions of SubSTATION Server, and even transfer their licenses to new hardware.
Windows XP support is just one of many things substation server professionals need to manage. Hotfixes, new software versions, security patches, hardware obsolescence, operating system support, all need to be managed.
The SUBNET Continuous Current Evolution program is much more than a support program. It's your warranty against hardware and software change and obsolescence.
