Support Plans

Before the year of support included with a purchase of the VAST Platform (VA Smalltalk) lapses, we recommend purchasing a yearly support plan

Support Plans are Critical to Long-Term Success

Instantiations recommends purchasing a support plan to keep your mission-critical systems up-to-date and running smoothly.

Continuous software updates and technical support provide:

  • A team of engineers dedicated to solving your technical issues with VAST
  • Continued functionality when major operating system updates are released
  • Security frameworks that are maintained to adhere to ever-changing standards
  • Updated features to streamline your development
  • New technologies to add functionality to your applications
  • New architecture releases (like ARM) for cross-platform deployment flexibility
