For Microsoft BizTalk support there are two categories, Mainstream and Extended.
Mainstream includes the following:
  • Non-security hotfix support
  • No-charge incident support
  • Warranty claims
  • Design Changes and feature requests
  • All the points in extended support
Extended support provides only:
  • Paid Support
  • Security Updates
  • Knowledge base articles available
If you purchase an extended hotfix agreement within 90 days of Mainstream support ending you extend the mainstream support features to the extended support phase.
So here are the dates for each BizTalk Server (full table here):
Mainstream Support
Extended Support
BizTalk 2010
12 January 2016
12 January 2021
Biztalk 2009
8 July 2014
9 July 2019
BizTalk 2006 R2
12 July 2011
12 July 2016
BizTalk 2006
12 July 2011
12 July 2016
BizTalk 2004
14 July 2009
8 July 2014
BizTalk 2002
10 July 2007
10 July 2012
What does this mean? As you can see BizTalk 2006 and 2006 R2 are reaching the end of mainstream support next week, and there’s not much left for BizTalk 2004 and 2002 extended support. Therefore if you currently have or support BizTalk Server at your company or clients it’s time to consider upgrading or at least purchase extended hotfix support.
