As with OutSystems 11 Cloud customers, you will be able to continue running your self-managed applications at least through March 2027, and we will provide you with at least two years of notice before OutSystems 11 will no longer be available to support self-managed applications.
More importantly, though, long before the end of life date for OutSystems 11 for self-managed applications, OutSystems will offer you the option of upgrading your OutSystems 11 applications to OutSystems Developer Cloud running in your own private cloud - again without requiring any additional development effort. Everything needed to run your apps will be inside your domain, with all of your data and IP controlled by you. This option will be available by the end of 2024.
This will be a self-managed solution but based on a modern cloud architecture. We are taking this approach because OutSystems Developer Cloud is a state-of-the-art, cloud native platform. As such, it requires sophisticated services for auto scaling, low cost of operation, and complex data configurations. It also depends on network optimizations made possible through services only available from the most sophisticated cloud providers. Furthermore, this infrastructure is constantly changing and will almost certainly change dramatically over the next five years. We want to provide you with the best possible technology solution for you to run your applications and this approach reflects that’s imperative.
