How will existing customers be affected by this End of Life?

What happens to my servers if I don’t take any action?

Starting March 31, 2024, you will no longer be able to manage your servers using the OpsWorks console or API. At that time, we will stop performing any ongoing management functions for your servers such as backups or maintenance. To limit impact to customers, we will leave the EC2 instances running that back up Puppet Enterprise servers, but their licenses will no longer be valid as usage is no longer covered (or billed for) under the OpsWorks for Puppet Enterprise service agreement.
