Thanks for the question Ken. Over the past few months, we’ve been evaluating our development investments and doing some thoughtful strategy work to chart the best course to advance the capabilities we provide to our customers.
Your right to call out that AAH does have some features that do not exist in Server. That being said, we’ve been splitting our development investment across the two products - not giving either the attention it deserves. In parallel, many of our customers looking to move their data and consumption to cloud-first delivery models. So, instead of continuing to invest in two on-premises server products, we determined that customers would benefit most if we could focus our development on Server and on a cloud platform.
I assure you that this decision was not taken lightly and was only taken after carefully identifying this as the best outcome. For those customers currently using AAH or deploying AAH, we are committed to continue to support the product, and would love the opportunity to discuss the options for moving forward with our products. Please reach out to me or your account team and we can discuss further.
