ESRS Gateway configuration (v2.x) EOL

Hi All,

Do we have any EOL/EOSL date for ESRS Gateway configuration (v2.x) ?

Some customers resisting to upgrade to VE version. They have concern about security and some high availability futures.

Or if we have detailed any comparison document can help us.

Regards

Aret
